Newsbrief: Wild Shadow Studios, the team behind popular indie MMO Realm of the Mad God, has been acquired by social games giant Kabam, while co-creator SpryFox has sold its stake in the game. The game originally launched in 2010 as an entry into an indie game competition, and was later expanded into a fully fledged MMO, available via the official website and through Steam. Designer Willem Rosenthal, who has been working on the game for several months, is staying on board to guide the project going forward, and the team says that the acquisition means it will be able to pull more resources into expanding the title.
