Kobojo, the premier software editor in France and one of the leaders in Europe in the social gaming universe on Facebook and mobiles, completes a $7.5m (€5.3m) fund-raising to support the development of the company in France and internationally.

The funds have been raised in this first round from Endeavour Vision, as a lead investor, and IDinvest Partners.

Kobojo already has a number of successful bestsellers under its belt. Their first game “Petite Questions entre Amis” [A few questions among friends] was a roaring success, gaining 8 million users in just two months. The team launched Goobox in July 2009, which gained 3 million users in just one month. From then on, Kobojo was a force to be reckoned with in the social gaming market, thanks to its technical expertise and its users, who have overwhelmingly acclaimed the Kobojo universe and their games.
