News

Madbox, the game studio behind StickMan Hook, Dash Valley, Sausage Flip and Golf Race announces today a €15m Series A with Alven. This funding round will enable to accelerate the new generation mobile gaming studio’s growth into a new global industry leader.

Stemming from the merger of two Paris-based game studios in summer 2018, Madbox has experienced incredible success in only a few months, with hit successes such as StickMan Hook and Sausage Flip ranking at the top of AppStore and Google Play charts, and has accrued over 100 millions downloads in less than a year.
