Los Angeles based SGN has acquired TinyCo, the creators of Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff and Marvel Avengers Academy.
SGN President and COO, Josh Yguado said
We are excited about bringing TinyCo into the SGN family for a number of reasons, but most of all, for their team and talent. Suli [Ali] has brought together an incredible team of designers, artists and engineers that make up TinyCo, and they have worked together to create tremendously successful and engaging games. Creatively, this is a perfect fit. Both companies are known for creating fun, high-quality, sustainable franchises that drop new content every month and have passionate fans who play multiple times a day.
Buying TinyCo helps us diversify the types of games we offer and advance our ambition to create a mobile gaming giant.
TinyCo’s CEO, Suli Ali commented
We are thrilled to join the SGN family, as TinyCo’s games complement SGN’s portfolio of games perfectly. Being a part of SGN will enable us to continue building hugely successful games with Hollywood franchises but with SGN’s resources and firepower behind us.
Ali will lead TinyCo’s 125-person staff which grows SGN to approximately 400 employees.
SGN was founded by Former MySpace CEO Chris DeWolfe and have released mobile titles including Cookie Jam, Panda Pop, Juice Jam, Genies & Gems and The Book of Life: Sugar Smash.
