So has Zapak licensed or developed these 12236 casual games? Not quite - they appear to be aggregating games that can be embedded. This is a model that we first saw being used by Sashi Chimala's Knibble, a site which aggregating over 10,000 games, and was acquired by FX Labs for $3 Million. How does this work? Chimala had explained in an interview: "We crawl the internet and look at other sites that allow casual games to be embedded. If you look at casual games sites, most of them allow their games to be embedded in a Myspace profile or a Facebook profile. So we collect them from all over.
