Game Developer Acquisition Goes Down

Today proved to be yet another good (meaning profitable) occasion to be a developer for some people.  This morning, ngmoco, which deals in mobile games, acquired Stumptown Game Machine, an iPod and iPhone game specialist.

Unfortunately, the terms of the deal were not disclosed, and a few folks may be disappointed to find out that Stumptown’s head, Andrew Stern, will work for ngmoco (as opposed to buy an island and retire).

Still, Stern seems happy enough to continue dealing with the organization.  “ngmoco has been an incredibly supportive and creative partner from the beginning of Touch Pets Dogs,” he said in a statement.  “Formally joining the team strengthens our collaboration and creates the opportunity to make exciting new games.”

Congrats to all of the involved parties, and hopefully this news will serve as encouragement for other developers.
