Indie publisher tinyBuild shared some big news today as it was revealed that it has acquired Konfa Games, developer of titles such as the acclaimed Despot’s Game: Dystopian Army Builder. This isn’t all that surprising given that tinyBuild has been working with Konfa Games as the publisher of Despot’s Game, with said game getting its Version 1.0 launch on September 15.

It’s noted that the maximum deal consideration for Konfa Games is up to $5.4 million, “split approximately 40 percent cash and 60 percent newly issued tinyBuild shares.” That’s not the only big purchase tinyBuild has made recently either, as it’s also acquired several IPs from Bossa Studios including Surgeon Simulator, Surgeon Simulator 2, Surgeon Simulator VR, I Am Bread, and I Am Fish for an upfront payment of $3 million.

The upfront payment of $3 million might sound high at first, but given the fact that Bossa franchises delivered a reported $6 million in total revenues back in 2021 alone, the deal price makes a bit more sense.

Overall, with these new developments, we look forward to seeing what tinyBuild will do with Bossa IPs like Surgeon Simulator and I Am Bread, along with upcoming releases from the newly acquired Konfa Games including the 1.0 launch of Despot’s Game.
