Keywords acquires AI testing outfit Mighty Games

Games services giant Keywords Studios has made another acquisition in testing company Mighty Games.

The Melbourne, Australia-based company was founded back in 2013 by studio head Matt Ditton and CTO Ben Britten-Smith. Mighty uses AI to test code within video games and has created its own proprietary Build and Test platform. This automatically detects bugs and errors in code.

"We are delighted to welcome the Mighty Games team to Keywords and to be able to offer their impressive automated game testing solutions and expertise to our clients," Keywords CEO Bertrand Bodson (pictured) said.

"This acquisition is in line with our strategy to harness innovative technology to do more for our clients and remain at the forefront of our industry. Mighty’s talented game development team further strengthens our game development presence in Melbourne and follows the recent acquisitions of Tantalus and Wicked Witch in Australia. We are really looking forward to supporting Mighty’s team and growth as part of the Group."

Ditton and Britten-Smith added: "We are really excited to join Keywords Studios, an industry leading, fast growing business with a global footprint. Ben and Iare looking forward to delivering strong growth with the support of Keywords and helping to offer technology enabled Build and Test solutions to its global client base. We see it as a strong cultural fit and we look forward to working closely with the wider Keywords' group to drive the combined business forward."
