Google Acquires Social Gaming Company SocialDeck

If you’ve had any doubt that GoogleMe is a serious project at Google, that should be laid to rest recently with their host of recent acquisitions that include the virtual currency firm Jambool, the app making firm Slide, the social search firm Angstro and the video search engine like.com. If that still isn’t enough for you how about today’s acquisition, SocialDeck.

If you’re unfamiliar with SocialDeck, according to Indyposted, the company is an online social gaming firm that has built such hits as Shake & Spell, which allows users to simultaneously play the game from their mobile devices (Blackberry/iPhone) and even through Facebook. They have also built Pet Hero MD, Color Connect and Shake & Spell 3D.

The Wall Street Journal says the acquisition may be part of a new gaming service that Google has been pitching to various top online social gaming firms:

Google has been in discussions with top developers to offer their games on a new service it is building, according to people familiar with the matter. Those developers include Playdom Inc., Electronic Arts Inc.’s Playfish and Zynga Game Network Inc., these people have said.

At this time the acquisition price is being kept quite.
