Netflix acquires ‘cozy games’ developer SpryFox
In brief

Netflix has acquired SpryFox, an independent game developer focused on “cozy, original” games such as Triple Town, Alphabear, and Cozy Grove.

SpryFox will be Netflix’s sixth in-house gaming studio following a bevy of other acquisitions this year and the launch of a Helsinki-based internal studio in September.

Amir Rahimi, Netflix’s VP of game studios, commented that the streaming company is building out its in-house creative capacity to deliver gaming experiences that will not include ads or in-app purchases.
