Sod £63,000 a Day -- We'll Take £130 Million Thanks

By Sam Gibbs on at

Apparently ripping-off Pictionary is big business. Not content with pulling in a Premiership footballer-like £63,000 a day, the developer of the Draw Something app sensation sold-out to the copycat gaming juggernaut Zynga for a rumoured £130 million. Now that’s what I call a good day’s earnings, especially after just six weeks success in the App Store.

Considering Zynga probably would have just shoved out a “Draw with Friends” clone if OMGPOP hadn’t sold, I think that’s a pretty good deal for the once-struggling developer. 130 million quid for Pictionary; I’m in the wrong game. [TechCrunch]
