One of Time Warner’s remaining CD-ROM units, Inscape, has been acquired by Irvine-based software publisher Graphix Zone.
Inscape’s game titles include “The Residents’ Bad Day on the Midway” and “The Dark Eye.” Graphix Zone has focused on interactive music and entertainment titles. Recent releases include “Herbie Hancock Presents Living Jazz,” “Willie: The Life and Music of Willie Nelson” and “Nixon: The CD-ROM.”
Graphix Zone is publicly traded on Nasdaq.
Inscape was a partnership between HBO, Warner Music Group and Nash New Media, headed by Michael Nash.
Nash is not joining Graphix Zone. However, other execs from his company who are making the move include marketing VP Rob Sebastian, VP and general manager David Boss, project director Rebekah Behrendt and technology VP Brock LaPorte.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
