Valve buys Star Filled Studios

Bit Tech reports game publisher Valve has acquired Star Filled Studios, an indie game maker set up by a former Diablo III and Plants vs. Zombies developer. Only two people work at the studio though, so Valve VP of marketing Doug Lombardi commented on the deal that it should be seen as "Valve hiring two new employees instead of an acquisition of a company".
Star Filled Studios was established only a few months ago in September by former Blizzard North, PopCap and LucasArts developer Tod Semple and former PopCap, Blizzard and Maxis developer Jeff Gates.

Semple revealed that the studio had been acquired by Valve on his LinkedIn profile. He and Gates both also changed their job titles to 'developer at Valve Corporation'. Semple also states that Valve will be opening up a San Francisco office.

Semple is listed as having worked on Diablo 3, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and Plants vs. Zombies whilst Gates is listed as having worked on Darkspore and Spore.
