Artie is a platform for next-gen mobile games that can be shared and played instantly on popular social media apps.
Artie's technology enables high-quality mobile games to circumvent app stores and to be played directly in popular social media, video, and messaging platforms with no additional app download, API access, or integration needed.
Artie was founded in 2018 by Ryan Horrigan and Armando Kirwin. The company is headquartered in Los Angeles, California.
Artie’s technology runs Unity-games in the cloud and renders them on players’ phones inside of apps like Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat, Twitch, Discord, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
Artie's platform also enables new, optional gameplay features, including voice, texting, and camera input for more immersive and personalized gaming experiences.
Artie has forged several key partnerships with celebrities, athletes, and influencers for its initial slate of games, which will be distributed across social media, video, and messaging platforms.
Artie has closed a $10M Seed funding round on Feb 17, 2021. Backers included Zynga founder, Mark Pincus; Kevin Durant and Rich Kleiman's Thirty Five Ventures; music mogul Scooter Braun's Raised In Space; Shutterstock founder, Jon Oringer and others.
