Linden Lab® Acquires Blocksworld

SAN FRANCISCO - January 24, 2013 - Linden Lab, the makers of Second Life®, Creatorverse TM, Patterns TM, and other shared creative spaces, today announced that it has acquired the iPad game Blocksworld. Linden Lab will offer the game globally and will release it for new platforms, as the Blocksworld team joins the company.

Blocksworld is an iPad game in which players use cubes, wedges, rockets, wheels, motors and more to easily create 3D models of anything they can imagine - from race cars to animals to robots and more. These models come alive with realistic physics simulation, and users can play, interact with, or even explode their creations. As with Linden Lab’s Creatorverse, Blocksworld allows users to share their creations with others to explore, play with, and remix to make them their own.

“Blocksworld is a great fit with what we do at Linden Lab,” said Rod Humble, CEO of Linden Lab. “It’s a very user-friendly complement to our portfolio of shared creative spaces. We’re happy to have the Blocksworld team join Linden Lab and are looking forward to bringing Blocksworld to the App Store worldwide soon!”

iPad is a trademark of Apple Inc., registered in the U.S. and other countries. App Store is a service mark of Apple Inc.
