Social studio Lolapps acquires popular isometric Flash games tool
Social games firm Lolapps has acquired the Fliso Flash engine from indie dev Sean Cooper games. The engine has been up for sale since February 2010.
The engine will now be branded as the Lolapps Fliso Engine. It is already being used on Lolapps title Ravenwood Fair, and is currently being licenced to four of the top five social games developers on several projects.
Sean Cooper has joined Lolapps as chief flash architect, reporting to studio CEO Arjun Sethi.
Sean Cooper has considerable industry experience, having worked at British studios Bullfrog Productions and Electronic Arts. He has been in the casual industry since 2005.
“The team at Sean Cooper Games is well-known for its thought leadership in Flash engine performance and its creativity in developing highly-regarded Flash games such as Boxhead and the Shadez series," said Arjun Sethi.
"We're excited to incorporate the Lolapps Fliso Engine into future Lolapps titles and third party titles by developers looking to get the most out of the Flash platform. This acquisition continues Lolapps' focus on bringing the highest levels of quality possible to social games."
