Ritual acquired by Mumbo Jumbo

Perhaps to CEO's surprise.

Weeks after telling our sister site GamesIndustry.biz that the developer would remain independent, Ritual Entertainment has been acquired by growing casual games specialist Mumbo Jumbo.

Ron Dimant, the founder of Mumbo Jumbo, was previously CEO of Ritual - having left the company in 2001 to start up the casual games firm.

The shock swoop will no doubt come as a surprise for Ritual CEO Ken Harward just as it will for industry watchers. Harward recently assured GamesIndustry.biz that despite rumours following a management change, Ritual - developer of SiN Episodes - would continue to remain an independent developer.

Head over to GamesIndustry.biz for the full report.
