Costing $36 million, the deal entails keeping on most of Scaleform's approximately 30 staff and will see its CEO Brendan Iribe, CTO Michael Antonov and COO Marc Bennett all become Autodesk executives.
Scaleform's primary software is Scaleform GFX, which focuses on UIs for games. It is apparently used in over 800 titles on multiple platforms.
