Thunderful buys Studio Fizbin

European publishing outfit Thunderful has bought its 11th developer in Studio Fizbin.

The Say No More maker has come under the company's wing via its Headup subsidiary. No figure has been placed on the deal, which also includes all of Fizbin's IP.

“Studio Fizbin represents the first studio where we have moved from a publishing relationship to the acquisition, thanks to our strong partnership with them,” Thunderful chief games officer Agostino Simonetta said.

“Adding to Thunderful’s roster of studios with acquisitions is an important part of our business strategy when it comes to our IP-building pillar. With Studio Fizbin joining the likes of Coatsink, Jumpship, Early Morning Studio and our talent behind the SteamWorld series, we now have eleven studios that we are supporting to unleash their creative vision and build strong IP.”

Studio Fizbin co-founder and CEO Alexander Pieper (pictured) added: “We are incredibly hyped to be joining Thunderful and elevating our long-standing relationship to the next level. Becoming part of a bigger organisation like this is a real benefit to our studio in terms of the support and infrastructure Thunderful offers. We have their full backing to follow our creative vision and this allows us to focus on making Project Kokidon and our future games the best we’ve ever shipped”.
