Zynga’s fortunes have declined in recent months.

NEW YORK — Dan Porter is leaving Zynga Inc. a year after­ the online game maker bought his company, OMGPop, for $183 million.

Zynga said Tuesday that Porter has left its New York office. Sean Kelly has been named as the studio’s head.


OMGPop, a mobile game maker, created Draw Something, a once-popular mobile game that has since fizzled. Zynga is getting ready to launch the game’s successor, Draw Something 2.

San Francisco-based ­Zynga’s fortunes have declined along with the popularity of its games, which include FarmVille.
