6Waves Lolapps Lays Off Development Staff

Social game studio 6Waves Lolapps has laid off its development staff to focus on publishing games. The company will apparently no longer make any games internally as part of a new reorganization. 6Waves Lolapps is currently fighting a game cloning lawsuit filed against it by mobile studio Spry Fox. Spry Fox filed a lawsuit in January claiming that 6Waves Lolapps blatantly copied its game Triple Town when it created Yeti Town.

"6waves Lolapps will now focus on working with independent developers to launch and grow their mobile and social games," chief executive Rex Ng said in a statement sent to TechCrunch. "As a result, we have restructured the company to focus on key functions which include developer outreach, product advisory, user growth initiatives and our publishing platform.”
