Zynga gobbles up Lucky Space maker, Mortal Kombat co-creator
"After exploring various options and talking to a lot of interested partners, Jordan and I are convinced Zynga is the best choice for us. Zynga sees something very special in A Bit Lucky and the team we have assembled," A Bit Lucky CEO Frederic Descamps said in a email to industry friends. "Likewise, why we picked Zynga is pretty simple: it was truly a meeting of the minds. At Zynga, we met people like us: passionate hardcore game developers animated by a strong entrepreneurial spirit. Jordan and I are excited to work with them every day to build great mid-core multi-platform games and grow this new category together."
Zynga also took this time to point out that it has recruited John Tobias, co-creator of the legendary Mortal Kombat series. He'll join NBA Jam (and Bubble Safari) creator Mark Turmell at Zynga San Diego on a super secret "mid-core" project. Correct us if we're wrong, but it looks like Zynga is in the middle of quite a sharp turn.
