In its quest to save us all from the same old Facebook and mobile games, TeePee Games has found another investor in Turner Broadcasting Europe, who owns TV networks like Cartoon Network and Turner Classic Movies, VentureBeat reports. While the amount of the investment is undisclosed, Turner will back the London-based social games discovery service as it continues its beta testing of over 25 thousand users. Through TeePee, users find new games to play based on their gameplay habits.

The more folks use the service, the more points they'll earn that can later be turned in for rewards. According to VentureBeat, TeePee looks to become for game discovery what Pandora has become for music discovery."This series of deals signals Turner Broadcasting's readiness to act on relevant investment and partnership opportunities in the digital and gaming space" said TBS Europe president Jeff Kupsky.

TeePee CEO and co-founder Tony Pearce says that this a rare chance for the industry to change how its games are discovered across several platforms. The question is, can TeePee Games fill this void before, say, Facebook itself does the job?
