Digital Goldfish studio acquired by Ninja Kiwi

Scotland-based games developer Digital Goldfish will now develop mobile titles for Ninja Kiwi after being acquired by the publisher, the studio announced.

Digital Goldfish, which was purchased by Ninja Kiwi for an undisclosed amount, previously worked with the publisher on the development of mobile versions of Bloons and Bloons TD.

"What started as a simple license deal developed into the perfect partnership," said Digital Goldfish co-founder Barry Petrie in a prepared statement. "We have collaborated on several successful titles together and racked up millions of downloads in the process. This deal made absolute sense for both parties and was a natural progressive step in the relationship between the two companies. We are delighted to become part of the Ninja Kiwi family and are excited for the future as we look to bring existing and new Ninja Kiwi IP to a variety of platforms.

The studio and all 15 employees will remain in Dundee, Scotland under current management, while all titles developed by the company will now be published under the Ninja Kiwi label.

The studio's first title under this new partnership, the tower defense game Bloons TD 5, will launch on iOS this November. The Bloons series was first developed by Ninja Kiwi in 2007, and has since expanded to numerous titles on smartphones, tablets and Internet browsers.
