Kixeye: Zynga is ‘desperate’ to get its hands on Kixeye’s secrets

The central claim in developer Kixeye‘s cross-complaint against social game creator Zynga is that it’s actually Zynga who wants to steal Kixeye’s trade secrets. (Casual games, Industry, Kixeye, Zynga)

Shit Kixeye says:

“Comparing Kixeye’s games to Zynga’s games is like comparing a Ducati racing motorcycle to a minivan.”
“Zynga is notorious for copying and cloning the games of its competition, often trampling those competitors.”
“To the extent that Zynga has any kind of ‘playbook,’ there is only one play inside and it is no secret — relentless and shameless copying of its competitors’ games.”
“Zynga has initiated a clear shift in its corporate strategy and is seeking to mimic Kixeye in a desperate effort to reinvigorate its own moribund business model. …”
