Wait four?

That’s right, in addition to Astrid, MileWise and GoPollGo, the lumbering Internet giant bought Loki Studios.

The Palo Alto-based mobile gaming company, whose major game is Geomon, has a eight-person staff, most of whom are Stanford alumni. It appears all but the UX designer (and sole woman) will make the move to Yahoo.

“We are thrilled to be joining the exceptional folks at Yahoo!. We believe fully in their commitment to creating outstanding mobile products. We are excited to learn from, work with, and contribute to one of the most well-known pioneers of the tech industry,” Loki said.
