"The company announced today that it has hired Richard Quesada
and Rolando Abarca, the co-founders of cocos2d. The open source iOS
and Mac OS game development platform will still be run by Quesada
and Abarca, but they are now officially Zynga employees.
"Not to mention that the company has acquired something in the
traditional sense: assets of Sapus Media, a company ran by the duo.
VentureBeat reports Zynga said that it is a large supporter of the
open source community and that the two hires will help in their
mobile gaming efforts."
