Disney nets Minds Eye

Company has been at forefront of game development

HOLLYWOOD — The Walt Disney Internet Group has acquired Blighty’s Minds Eye Prods., one of Europe’s leading developers of interactive TV games.

Founded in 1995, Minds Eye employs more than 20 artists, programmers and designers. The company has been at the forefront of game development for the Sky Active platform, including developing iTV versions of “Monopoly” and “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.”

Minds Eye also developed games on the Disney Channel Play service on Sky Gamestar, including “Timon and Pumbaa’s Bug Blast,” “Finding Nemo” and “Kim Possible: Robot Frenzy.”

Minds Eye will keep its offices in Milton Keynes, about 40 miles northeast of London.

“We already have a great portfolio of interactive assets in Europe, and Minds Eye is a natural fit,” said Mark Handler, executive VP and managing director of WDIG.
