Bringing multiplayer tech to every dev
“Real-time multiplayer experiences still have significant untapped potential,” said co-founder Dino Patti. “There are so many hurdles when it comes to making multiplayer games that can effectively shut down the creative process early on in a game’s development. With coherence, we want to break those barriers, and this latest round of funding is going to help us fulfill that mission. It’s been a very exciting journey until now, and I can’t wait for more talent to join our already amazing team.”
“We are thrilled to be working with the talented team at coherence to create the next generation of multiplayer technology for games,” said Anthony Palma, Partner at Griffin Gaming Partners. “As a former game developer, I know the challenges Dino and his team are addressing for creators firsthand. We are excited to see them empower more game makers to build scalable and complex multiplayer experiences with coherence.”
