Draw Something creator sold for $180 million
small number of employees that they have. For example, OMGPOP is a 40 man team.
Just a few months ago, things were not looking too good for OMGPOP and it looked as though the developer was going to be forced to raise money not on their own terms. But luckily for them, Draw Something became a major hit and was the reason behind the sale to Zynga. In other words, OMGPOP got while the getting was good proving once again that in America, a good idea can still be worth millions if not billions.

wow i was actually wondering what Zynga thought about the sucess of Draw Something being so similar to their style. i guess it's needless to say they were impressed. xD

Maybe you skimmed over this "OMGPOP brings in $250,000 a day from the game (after Apple takes its 30% slice) and is available in a free and paid version. The free version generates 1 billion ad impressions a day".

no i read it… i dont not read articles before commenting… but that number is fleeting… in 2 months i doubt that number will be the same… it seems like apps go through popularity rise and falls (ie PvZ, fieldrunners, stickwars, etc.)… barely any sustain popularity.. so i am just thinking they are going more for the creative minds behind the app rather than the initial app.. the app would have to retain its popularity for over a year to be effective
