The deal marks Kwalee's first ever acquisition, and according to the company will allow it to expand its hypercasual business by leveraging both casual and hybrid-casual titles.

Based in France, Tictales is known for developing and publishing titles including Perfume of Love, Fictions, and Swiit Crush - Interactive Stories. Its game roster has amassed over 6 million downloads to date.
