British developer/publisher Double Eleven has acquired VooFoo Studios, the developer best known for Mantis Burn Racing.
Double Eleven – the studio behind indie hits including Goat Simulator, Prison Architect and Pixeljunk – made the announcement on its website. It declined to reveal how much money was involved in the acquisition, but Double Eleven’s CEO and co-founder Lee Hutchinson said: “With VooFoo’s track record of clean design and strong execution, along with their breadth of experience, we’re looking forward to a relationship that will positively impact the type of entertainment experiences we can offer.”
VooFoo MD and co-founder Mark Williams added: “I see it as a fantastic opportunity to leverage our collective strengths and do things we might not have been able to otherwise. While Double Eleven has a huge amount of technical experience, they also bring a lot more to the table in terms of support and resources from both a development and publishing point of view.”
The deal also included VooFoo’s Mantis Engine, the technical framework behind Mantis Burn Racing and the developer’s other recent games. VooFoo recently announced its next game, This Is Pool, and in the developer’s 12 years of existence, it has scored hits with the Pure series of sim games and Hustle Kings.
