Kelowna’s Atrium Ventures is handing out more money this week, this time to the Victoria-based developer Agog Labs Inc.
Agog is the creator of SkookumScript, the premiere programming language and development platform for the creation of gameplay and AI within video games.
SkookumScript is currently used by more than 500 gaming studios and developers, and is integrated with the well-known game engine Unreal Engine 4.
Atrium, an entrepreneur-led venture capital corporation known for investing in promising new technology companies in British Columbia, said today it will invest $100,000 in Agog.
“Atrium is pleased to be making this investment and supporting the next stage of growth for Agog. They are becoming well-positioned in the market, have a strong experienced team, and a great product,” said Jeff Keen, Atrium’s managing director.
Agog is led by gaming industry veterans Conan Reis and Markus Breyer. Keen says the pair’s 40+ years in the industry give the “well-connected” pair a “deep domain knowledge.”
“We believe that Agog has a very bright future in the gaming industry. Conan and his team have created a platform that allows studios to develop and get games to market faster, something we are all striving to do,” said Lance Priebe, the co-founder of Club Penguin, CEO of Hyper Hippo Games and Atrium investor.
Earlier this week, Atrium announced a $150,000 investment in Kelowna’s Perfit Dental Solutions Inc.
