Gamevil acquires RYUminus and their music simulation game TouchMix

As far as we can tell this could be the first time a small game developer has been acquired by a bigger one in the world of Android. Gamevil just announced that they have acquired RYUminus, developers of the music simulation game TouchMix. Gamevil has also stated that an update is on the way with new songs.

This is a great sign of things to come and that game development is healthy in the world of Android. When a smaller indie developer is acquired by a larger game developer, only good things can come of this. This also brings Gamevil into the world of publishing, not just development.

“We’re excited to bring aboard TouchMix, which has been squarely at number one in the rhythm game genre on the carrier Android stores in Korea.” said Yong Kuk Lee, CFO of GAMEVIL. “Going forward, GAMEVIL hopes to make its mark not only as first party publishing but also as publishers of excellent external games.”

TouchMix is a music simulation game, sort of like a DDR type of game but revolving around music, similar to Beatmania IIDX. All the controls are touch screen and it is a rather fun game to play, one of the few music sim games for Android. Gamevil acquiring it means there will be more updates and songs for it, keeping it fresh and entertaining. Check out the full press release below.

The full version of TouchMix is available for download off the Android Market for $1.70 and there is also a free trial version for you to test out.
