Buffalo Studios has accused casual games giant Zynga of copying one of its titles in the development of Zynga Bingo.
In an open message to Zynga, Buffalo Studios said it is "moved that your new game was so inspired by our innovative product Bingo Blitz."
"Bingo Blitz has been growing throughout the past year and has obviously earned the attention of titanic forces in the industry," it continued.
Both the tone of the message as well as the format is inspired by Nimblebit's actions last week, when it called out the FarmVille creator for cloning 'Dream Heights' and releasing it as 'Tiny Tower' for the iOS.
Like Nimblebit's message, Buffalo Studios points out the gulf between the size of the two studios, with Zynga numbering in the thousands and Buffalo being a relatively small outfit in comparison.
"Please tell your thousands of employees and shareholders that we hope they enjoy playing the games we're cooking up next!
Sincerely, The Herd (and the rest of the indie world)
PS - As you can see, NimbleBit inspires us too!"
Last year Zynga was hit with a lawsuit by SocialApps, developer of myFarm, which accusing it of using stolen source code to create FarmVille.
