Miniclip has acquired Powerwash Simulator maker FuturLab

Miniclip has bought UK developer FuturLab for an undisclosed sum.

In a post on their websites, the duo announced the deal, which will see the Powerwash Simulator maker retain autonomy and CEO Kirsty Rigden (pictured) will be in charge.

“In March, we proudly welcomed the award-winning game studio, FuturLab, to the Miniclip Group. The success of PowerWash has catapulted the studio into a genre leader and pioneer in the market for ‘games that soothe’," Miniclip boss Saad Choudri said.

“Supported by a thriving and highly engaged community of PowerWash fans and with an exciting pipeline of growth opportunities in the soothing genre, FuturLab is a very welcome addition to our ever-growing, Miniclip Group.”

FuturLab CEO Kirsty Rigden addded: “We’re proud to say that we are now part of the Miniclip family. It’s exciting for us to charter a course that brings Miniclip into the PC/console space. Followers of the studio will notice not much has changed; we still have autonomy over our studio operations and the games we develop. However, this new security will allow us to bring you many more, great games in the years to come”.
