Voice-controlled game developer Volley closes Series C fundraising with $55m


Voice-controlled game developer Wally has completed its Series C funding round and secured $55 million.

This follows Volley’s Series A round in 2020 and Series B round in 2022, both of which were led by Lightspeed Venture Partners.

Round C was again led by Microsoft's M12 Ventures and Lightspeed, with participation from Causeway Media Partners, General Catalyst, Amazon Alexa Fund, Bitkraft, Y Combinator, Boost VC, Alumni Ventures, Waverley, Genzels, and Riverside.

Volley – founded in 2016 by Max Child and James Wilsterman – says it is the highest-grossing AI-powered games company and the leading maker of AI-powered games for smart TVs and Alexa devices, engaging more than 5 million players each month.

It uses speech recognition, natural language processing, large language models, and speech synthesis to “create seamless, simple, enjoyable entertainment.”

“This latest funding round will accelerate the development of our new voice-controlled, AI-powered games,” said Child, who serves as CEO.

“Big language models and other emerging voice AI technologies are allowing us to create entirely new categories of games that were not possible before. We are thrilled to grow our portfolio of titles and reach new customers with the support of Microsoft and Lightspeed.”
