Zynga Dallas (formerly Bonfire Studios) was a video game development company based in Dallas, Texas. After Ensemble Studios was shut down by Microsoft in 2009, Bonfire Studios was one of four companies founded by some of Ensemble's former employees.
In late July 2010, the team released We Farm for iOS. On October 5, 2010, Bonfire Studios was acquired by Zynga and renamed Zynga Dallas. Their first project was CastleVille, released in 2011.
The studio was shuttered as part of mass worldwide layoffs by their parent company in 2013.
