Tiny Speck Gets $10.7M for Glitch

San Francisco- and Vancouver-based Tiny Speck, founded two years ago by Flickr co-founder Stewart Butterfield to build a massively multiplayer online game called Glitch, announced yesterday in a blog post that it has picked up $10.7 million in Series B funding from existing investors Accel Partners and Andreessen Horowitz. “This new investment allows us to move even faster in creating a game-world like no other, to continue building the powerful tech infrastructure underneath it all, and to build out the services to support our ever growing player base,” Butterfield said in the post. Glitch was recently opened to invitation-only private beta testing by outsiders; the company hasn’t specified a release date for the game.
