Influencer-led DoubleJump Games acquires mobile Canadian developer TinyMob

Canadian mobile games company DoubleJump has acquired local developer TinyMob.

DoubleJump has released titles such as mobile RPG Slash Mobs and platformer Grappling Garry in the past. It was co-founded by Ian Stapleton, also known as SSundee on YouTube where he has eight million subscribers.

TinyMob meanwhile has previously developed multiplayer strategy title Tiny Realms, which received a Gold Award from our sister-site Pocket Gamer and has been played over 10 million times worldwide.

The team consists of industry veterans from EA, Disney and Microprose (now Glu Mobile).

More to come

Following the deal, TinyMob co-founders Alex Mendelev and Jamie Toghill will take on executive roles at DoubleJump.

DoubleJump said is still looking to grow its portfolio and that further acquisitions and publishing deals are on the cards.

"I am thrilled for the future of our company,” said DoubleJump Games co-founder Ian Stapleton.

“We’re very excited to accelerate the execution of our influencer strategy and bring amazing games to new audiences."

He added: “Following this deal, we are excited to focus on plans for future growth, including the growth of both the company and its portfolio. We are looking to help other games studios with strategic distribution and look forward to introducing high-calibre games to millions of new players around the world.”
