Though it was only founded this year, Orlando-based games studio Row Sham Bow has already made a big splash on Facebook thanks to the excellent strategy game Woodland Heroes. The studio was founded by a number of industry veterans who have worked on everything from EA Sports games like Madden and Tiger Woods to hit series like Guitar Hero and Marvel Ultimate Alliance. They’re now using that expertise to do something interesting in the free-to-play social space, and in the latest edition of Gamezebo Cribs we head down to their dowtown Orlando office to see just where that’s happening.
