Super Heat Games has closed on a $1.6 million Series A round of venture financing led by Diamond Ridge Ventures and DFJ Frontier. Partners from the funds will join Super Heat’s board. 
The proceeds of the round will be primarily used to support the launch of Super Heat Skateboard Trading Card Game, due out May 24th. Super Heat is being distributed by Konami (see “Konami to Distribute Super Heat Games”).  The product is being positioned as both a TCG and trading cards, and will be supported by a major marketing campaign (see “The Push Behind Super Heat”). 

Diamond Ridge, formed in 2010, explores opportunities in sports and media; DFJ invests in information technology, media, life sciences, clean technology, and other emerging businesses.
