We have all heard of, seen, played or helped someone guess an answer on this new game sweeping the globe. Draw Something, a Pictionary-esque game hit the mobile gaming market 7 weeks ago and has not looked back since. It currently stands as the #1 top free ios game as well as the #2 top paid ios app.
Finally, the creator has cashed in on his idea. Charles Forman, the founder of Omgpop and creator of Draw Something sold his game to Zynga for a hefty price. Omgpop and the Draw Something game sold for $180 million. Let me say that again $180 million!!!
Great story linked up top, but best line has to be from Charles Forman “I had $1,700 in my bank account yesterday, and now I have a whole lot more”. Yeah I would say so.
What are your thoughts? What is going to be the next Draw Something or Words with Friends that becomes a must-have app? Is the app/social media business the new “sexy business” to get involved in?
