Independent game developer Free Lunch Design has been purchased by Swedish Fash specialists Muskedunder.
Free Lunch was founded by Johan Peitz in 1998 and specialises in free casual games. Its most popular title, Icy Tower – has been downloaded over 20 million times from download.com.
Muskedunder has taken the move to expand its range, previously having focused on advergames and serious games for clients as diverse as Doritos and the Red Cross.
“We will not be leaving the advergame space, but rather expand our development profile” says Magnus Alm, CEO of Muskedunder Interactive. “To the fans of Free Lunch Design I would like to emphasize that we are committed to the brands built by Johan, and we will make sure they stay 100% free and coming at a steady pace.”
Peitz added: ”This is a great injection, taking Free Lunch Design to new heights. The popularity of our games combined with the excellent business side of Muskedunder will create awesome synergetic effects.”
