Since foundation in 1990, Team17 has launched more than 100 games - including the iconic Worms, Overcooked! and Escapists franchises -making Team17 one of the most prolific developers and diverse partners of games for the indie market.

Chris and Paddy first invested in Team17 in 2016 and retained their stake throughout LDC's investment phase and beyond the firm's IPO in 2018. Chroma Ventures is now one of the largest non-institutional shareholders in the company, which is listed on AIM in London.
