Vivendi buys Issaquah's Secret Lair

Posted by Kim Peterson at 9:33 AM

Vivendi Games said yesterday that it has bought Issaquah-based Secret Lair Studios, a game developer. Vivendi also bought Studio Ch'in in Shanghai, China. The companies did not disclose the financial terms of the deals.

The acquisitions were designed to boost the role of Vivendi's Sierra Online group as a publisher of games for Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade casual gaming service.

Secret Lair, like many video game studios in the area, was created by former Microsoft employees. For more background on the company, here's a Firing Squad interview with Secret Lair's Jason Robar.
