Google Invests In Farmville Developer

Without so much as a peep, Google throws $100 million into Zygna. The developer for the GPA-reducing game Farmville has gained much momentum over the past years including a hardfought semi-final round against Valve in the Escapist’s Developer Battle. It then comes as almost no surprise that Google is interested in such a large stake in the company, particularly with the pending launch of their social network division Google Games later this year.
