The buy will enable Rovio to make more new games, with Futuremark focussing on its benchmarking of 3D hardware and games.

“They are an incredibly talented and experienced team, and we are thrilled to have them on board,” said Rovio chief executive Mikael Hed.

“Rovio’s success is founded on the excellence of our team, and Futuremark Games Studio is going to be a superb addition.”

Rovio launched Angry Birds Space last week for multiple platforms.

    @1 You said it.

    @2 I’ve never heard anyone say it’s the greatest game ever. It’s just a nice way to waste time.

    @4, No, I hate how successful it is. It’s a decent time waster but making plush toys, slippers & curtains out of it is ridiculous… Expect tv shows & movies for it in the near future. Also, who the hell are you to judge me you hypocrite, you often insult people for their tastes, seriously kid, grow up.
