Having a quick-look over at OMGPOP’s fan page, we see that the majority of fans are not happy with the $18 million cash acquisition of the company by massive game developer behind FarmVille and Words with Friends.
The users are mostly worried about the amount of forced-purchases and premium addons that will be enforced by the developers now, and many have threatened to delete the application in disappointment.
Dan Porter, the CEO of OMGPOP had this to say:
So to players of the game, don’t worry. Nothing’s changing and now all the features you want — chat and sharing and galleries and more – will come even faster. Thank you for everything. And to all future players, you are going to love the things that OMGPOP and Zynga are cooking up together. (Source)
So we wait to see what this buyout means for the highly-addictive game that took the net by storm, with downloads exceeding 30million already.
On twitter however, the response has been more positive with the majority in awe of the $18 million cash price-tag.
What is your verdict? Is Zynga going to give DrawSomething wings, or was this just a way to keep the throne under the giant’s name?
