The Cambridge-based business, which was founded in 2006 by Paul Taylor, Ian Hodson and Anthony Tomlinson, has developed technology which generates natural speech that responds to action in games.
All speech used in computer games at present is pre-recorded and therefore limited, according to the company.
Phonetic’s technology is currently in alpha release and will be fully launched later this year.
The company is targeting game developers with a middleware package operating on all major platforms, including Playstation 3, XBOX 360, Wii and PC.
Taylor says that IQ Capital is “providing us with the right mix of funding and support to ensure the acceleration of the growth of our business”. Financial terms weren’t disclosed.
