The Investment

The gaming industry is huge, and growing

The gaming industry has evolved at a near-continuous rate since the 1970s. Commercial and tech innovations have increased the number of worldwide gamers to nearly 3b, and annual industry revenue to $385b.

Game studios have repeatedly innovated on ways to retain and monetise gamers. From buying hard disc games like Super Mario Kart in the 1990s, to gaming-as-a-service subscriptions like World of Warcraft in the early 2000s, to free-to-play apps with in-app purchases like Candy Crush, gameplay has continuously evolved and with it, user spend.

Eyeball Games was founded by Jonathan Ivarsson and managed together with Karsten and Thomas, the original creators of 8 Ball Pool. It’s a Singapore-based game studio whose first title, Eyeball Pool is a high-quality and fun pool game built on Unity.
