The games industry transfer market was full of movement this week, as some big signings were made on a variety of fronts.

GREE made the most unexpected move by convincing Kabam's president of worldwide studios, Andrew Sheppard, to jump ship. Tapjoy also struck up a deal with Korean analytics firm 5Rock, while Game Insight appointed a new CEO in the form of industry veteran, Anatoly Ropotov.

Refusing to be left out, Kabam also dipped into the transfer market, striking up a partnership with developer Undead Labs who will work with the company to create Moonrise, an all new mobile RPG.

As always, there's more news where that came from, which is exactly why you should catch up on what you've missed by chowing down on our rather tasy Week that Was. Tuck in.
