Vivendi Games announced today that it has acquired mobile developer Centerscore, obtaining the rights to the company's entire portfolio of titles, including Alone: The Horror Begins, Amy's Jigsaw Scrapbook, and Amy's Hangman (which just so happened to receive a perfect score from us).
Oliver Miao, CEO of Centerscore, will continue his role in leading the studio, and comments, "as a young, creative team built around developing original games, Centerscore was hesitant to join a large company. However, Vivendi Games Mobile has the vision, the strength and the people with heart to make them an outstanding market leader".
Founded in 2000 by Miao and three of his friends from Stanford University, Centerscore is one of the most established mobile game developers in the U.S. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
