Ngmoco acquires Epic Pet Wars developer Miraphonic
Buying Facebook experience
No details of the deal were provided other than a tweet from ngmoco CEO Neil Young saying: Delighted to announce that Miraphonic, creators of the awesome Epic Pet Wars have been acquired by ngmoco!
Epic Pet Wars is a virtual training and fighting animal game which Miraphonic claims has over one million users. Its free to download but makes its money via the sales of the games in-app currency Respect Points, which cost anything from 59p to £23.99.
Miraphonic also has a similar game, Epic Soldier Wars.
The deal is part of ngmocos strategy to expand its focus from purely iPhone to other social networks: something it recently underlined with the recruitment of former MySpace SVP of business development, Jason Oberfest.
