Tod Semple, the man who brought us Plants vs. Zombies, had his two-man studio acquired by Valve according to his LinkedIn profile.  

"I've worked on Diablo 3, Star Wars Force Unleashed, and was the programmer that made Plants vs. Zombies," said Semple. "My recent startup was acquired by Valve and we are opening a new office on the San Francisco peninsula."

Semple wrote in his blog that he and his co-founder, Jeff Gates, visited Valve on September 20th to have a meeting. 

"Jeff and I are flying up to Seattle today. We are going to go visit Valve and check out all the cool stuff they are working on and see if there are any business opportunities. I'm pretty excited about this trip! They are a crazy awesome company and they are doing so much cool new stuff."

While Tod Semple and Jeff Gates are preparing for their move and new projects Valve has yet to make a statement.
