According to Playdom, Green Patch’s games will increase the company’s monthly user base on Facebook by more than 30 percent. In addition, (Lil) Farm Life, a resource management game with over one million daily active users, will join the company’s impressive lineup of role-playing games including Sorority Life and Mobsters 2.
Trippert Labs brings a large iPhone user base and increases the company’s development capacity by more than 25 percent.
The company has added that Green Patch’s founders, David King and Ashish Dixit, will join the company in leadership roles.

John Pleasants, CEO of Playdom, said: “Playdom has aggressive plans to expand our social gaming footprint in 2010. With these acquisitions, we are increasing our cross-promotional power and bringing two talented new game studios into the Playdom family. The addition of Green Patch and Trippert Labs will significantly enhance our development throughput and help fuel Playdom’s game pipeline.”
