Netflix has announced that it has acquired Spry Fox, an independent gaming studio that focuses on developing original games with a feel good tone. Spry Fox is now Netflix’s sixth in-house games studio.
Netflix said: “Spry Fox is an award-winning independent studio focused on cosy, original games. Their unique approach to game development and success with titles like Triple Town, Alphabear, and Cozy Grove will help accelerate our creative development in a beloved genre and add to the growing variety of Netflix’s games.”
Daniel Cook, co-founder of Spry Fox, said: “When David Edery and I founded Spry Fox 12 years ago, our goal was to create a place where kind, creative people could make beautiful, original games in a supportive environment that brought happiness to the people who played them. After many heartfelt conversations, we are all excited about joining Netflix as an in-house game studio and building amazing games together.”
Cook added: “I’m proud of the foundational work we’ve been doing to build out our in-house creative capacity so that we can deliver the best possible games experience — including no ads and no in-app purchases — to our members.”
