Puzzle Quest Studio Acquired by Flight Control Creators

The developers of Flight Control and Real Racing, Firemint, have acquired Puzzle Quest's Infinite Interactive. The move puts the two independent Australian studios into a mutually beneficial relationship, allowing Firemint to expand their catalog while giving Infinite a channel for independent publishing.

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.

Joe Donato Video games became an amazing, artful, interactive story-driven medium for me right around when I played Panzer Dragoon Saga on Sega Saturn. Ever since then, I've wanted to be a part of this industry. Somewhere along the line I, possibly foolishly, decided I'd rather write about them than actually make them. So here I am.
