Puzzle Quest Studio Acquired by Flight Control Creators

Infinite Interactive continues work on a game already in progress, with founder Steve Fawkner moving into a product management position at Firemint, while continuing work with Infinite.

The studio founders have known each other for years, and both studios are located in Melbourne, so the acquisition makes a lot of sense. That said, with two very successful independent developers coming together, it marks yet another example of indie development carving out a bigger piece of the game industry pie.
