A bit of media news now: Alloy Digital has announced the completion of its acquisition of The Escapist. GamePolitics reports the terms of the deal have not been disclosed, but both Alloy and previous Escapist owners Themis Media seem happy enough in statements, referencing the site’s established audience as well as Alloy’s deeper advertising revenue pockets. The Escapist launched in 2005 and presents a broad range of content; it’s particularly well known for its popular video series such as Yahtzee’s Zero Punctuation and Jim Sterling’s The Jimquisition.
