- Mercia Technologies has completed a £2.0m follow-on investment into nDreams Ltd, one of the UK's largest independent developers and publishers focused on virtual reality (VR) gaming and experiences content.

Mercia's investment into nDreams, which was part of a £2.7m funding round alongside sophisticated private investors and the recently appointed chair, increased the group's total amount of capital invested to £7.1m and resulted in a 45.6% equity shareholding.

As the VR market continued to expand, the additional capital would be used to support the release of new games and experience titles throughout 2017, including the latest of its five VR experiences, Bloody Zombies, which won a Best of VR Game Award at the 2017 E3 event in Los Angeles last month.
