NYC-based Crispy Gamer has announced that they have raised their first round of funding to the tune of $8.25 million from Constellation Ventures and company founders. The site offers editorial game content and a community for gamers. No insight was provided into how they plan to use the funding. The site has game reviews, a blog, game videos and a message board. It looks like they have about 800 game reviews.
Crispy Gamer says they have taken a “bold stance” in refusing to accept advertising from game publishers. In my testing, the site showed basically all remnant ads.
Eric Krangel wonders regarding their advertising decision, “Seems like a noble experiment, but with online display ads expected to contract next year, how long can Crispy go on shunning its most lucrative advertisers?”
