Rovio Acquires Games Division of Futuremark

Rovio has announced today that they have acquired the gaming division of Futuremark, perhaps best known for their latest entry The Unstoppable Gorg. This mirrors the recent move of Zynga picking up OMGPOP and countless other similar examples back through the ages and though a common practice I wish them both luck.

No word on what the Angry Birds developers have planned but hopefully this increased revenue gives the Futuremark guys a little more wiggling room to create some more great games.

John is what you might call something of a badass. When he's not writing about games or playing them, he's playing in the Kansas City band "Documentary" and drinking as many different beers as often as he can. He's a huge comic nerd in the best sense of the term, with a particular love for the Creator Owned movement.
