Disney is taking its evolution from a boxed product publisher into a digital games firm very seriously; it’s just snapped up a Finnish start-up focused on HTML5 games.
The entertainment giant has bought Helsinki-based Rocket Pack, a start-up which grabbed headlines for its work on a ‘Google Docs for games’ engine that lets users quickly build web and smartphone games.
Rocket Pack had already published a game of its own using the technology – Warimals.
Disney paid up to $20m for the firm, TechCrunch claims.
