Boomlagoon, the Helsinki-based game development studio founded by former Angry Birds creators, has raised $3.6 million in funding which will aid the studio in the development of mobile titles.

The firm was founded by Antti Stén who built Rovio’s cloud infrastructure; lead programmer Ilkka Halila; and Angry Birds graphic designer Tuomas Erikoinen.

Boomlagoon received initial start-up funding back in 2012.

Various investors helped supply the $3.6 million in conjunction with angel investors Jari Ovaskainen and London Venture Partners.

The first mobile title released by Boomlagoon was Noble Nutlings.
