Motiga, a stealthy Bellevue game developer led by former Trion Worlds Chief Stategy Officer Chris Chung, has raised $5.1 million. In addition to angel investors, South Korean online gaming companies Neowiz and Smilegate participated in the round.

“We found that the game companies in Asia are generally more eager to invest in PC online games,” Chung tells GeekWire via email. “We will be using the proceeds to help us develop unannounced PC online game with the goal to launch in the next two years.”

The company plans to offer more details about the game by the end of the year. Prior to Trion Worlds, Chung served as an executive at NCsoft. The company’s CTO is gaming veteran Rick Lambright, a former tech executive at Sierra Online and Sony Online Entertainment. Other execs previously worked at Monolith, Warner Bros.

Last summer, Motiga worked with game maker Tinfoil Fez on a title called LeftOvers, a free-to-play, real-time multiplayer game.
