Netflix announced today that it is acquiring mobile game development studio Boss Fight Entertainment. The studio will be part of Netflix’s ongoing effort to build games for its subscribers.

Boss Fight, which currently employs 130 people, has studios in Austin, the Dallas-Fort Worth area and Seattle. The company will continue to operate from those studios. The previous title of Boss Fight is the mobile Dungeon Boss title that made it with Big Fish Games.

Netflix’s VP of game studios, Amir Rahimi, noted in a statement that the studio’s founders are highly experienced: “Boss Fight Entertainment was founded in 2013 by David Rippy (CEO), Bill Jackson (CCO) and Scott Winsett (COO) , whose work I have long admired. This studio’s extensive experience building hit games across genres will help us bring great games to Netflix members wherever they want to play them.”

The founders said in their own statement: “The mission of Boss Fight is to provide simple, beautiful and fun gaming experiences for our players wherever they choose to play. Netflix’s commitment to offering ad-free games as part of its member subscriptions allows game developers like us to focus on creating great gameplay without worrying about monetization. We couldn’t be happier to join Netflix at this early stage as we continue to do what we love to do, while helping shape the future of games on Netflix together.”
