By Gary Merrett

Rocket Ninja, a developer of social 3D entertainment apps for PCs and connected devices has closed $7.5 million in Series B funding. Leveraging its Shr3D(TM) technology, Rocket Ninja creates applications that live inside web browsers, mobile devices and social networks. The company’s instant-play 3D offering is accessible across devices and applications and does not require downloads or plug-ins. Rocket Ninja’s financing round was led by European private investor Marcel Boekhoorn.

“3D revolutionized the gaming industry, and it will forever change the social web by delivering a new dimension in self-expression and interactivity,” said Oded Pelled, CEO of Rocket Ninja. “There’s a need for a company that has the technology, the killer apps and the savvy to showcase compelling 3D in entertainment across the social web.”

Rocket Ninja’s technology lowers the barrier to entry, running even on low-spec, non-hardware-accelerated systems with limited bandwidth. Earlier this year, Rocket Ninja launched its first game, Wrestler Unstoppable on Facebook. The game has currently 80.000 monthly active users.
