Tapulous CEO Bart Decrem will become a VP at Disney, according to Erick.
Tapulous makes the “Tap Tap Revenge” games which are similar to Rock Band or Guitar Hero.
This acquisition puts Disney in competition with Viacom, which owns Rock Band.
Obviously, this isn’t the only reason it bought Tapulous. Disney must think Decrem can do a better job building out mobile apps than anyone it has in house.
Investors in Tapulous include XG Ventures, Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff, and Justin Timberlake.
