Disney Buys Rocket Pack

Tech Crunch got the scoop that the Walt Disney Company has bought HTML5 gaming engine company Rocket Pack.

Tech Crunch got the scoop that the Walt Disney Company has bought HTML5 gaming engine company Rocket Pack. The Helsinki, Finland-based start-up is developing plugin-free browser games. Rocket Pack will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Disney Interactive Media Group. Tech Crunch speculates the sale was between $10 and $20 million.

The advantage of using Rocket Pack's game engine is that games can be played on the iPad, which doesn't support the Flash plu-in. Developers can then avoid Apple's App Store, because the games work in any browser.

Rocket Pack has also developed the HTML5 game WARIMALS.
