    Video streaming site Twitch announced today that it will acquire Curse Inc., the Alabama-based company whose popular add-on client and services are used for games like World of Warcraft and Minecraft, among others.

    According to an official announcement, Curse has an audience of 30 million people across its various networks and channels every month. In a blog post, Twitch said picking up Curse will give gamers "the tools and resources they need to achieve the ultimate gaming experience." Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

    "We've long been fans of Curse, which is an innovator in the games industry with a strong culture built around its offerings--from Curse Voice and Curse Client to Gamepedia," Twitch CEO Emmett Shear said in a statement. "While it's still early days for Twitch and Curse, we're kindred spirits in many ways and are looking forward to working together to enhance our users' gaming experience."

    Curse CEO Hubert Thieblot said in his own statement that Curse is "thrilled to be joining the Twitch family."

    "I'm really excited to see how we can bring Curse services into the Twitch network, and provide an unparalleled experience to both Curse and Twitch users," he added. "This is going to be terrific for the millions of players who use Curse, and for the larger gaming community."

    Twitch itself is owned by online retail giant Amazon, which paid $1 billion to buy the company in 2014.

    Curse was founded in 2006. Some of its most popular services are Curse Voice and Curse Client. You can learn more about Curse at its website.
