Glu Mobile has announced a tender offer to acquire developer and publisher Superscape Group.

Superscape has released a number of 3D games and mobile software, and has approximately 135 employees, a headquarters on California, production facility in Moscow and office in Hampshire, UK.

"This offer represents an important step in Glu's strategy to become the number one mobile games publisher in the world," commented Greg Ballard, CEO of Glu.

Superscape shareholders now have 21 days to accept the offer, which Larry Quinn, chairman of the company backs fully.

I am confident that Superscape will make a significant contribution to the future of the combined business," he said.
