Zynga (ZNGA -1.1%) strikes a deal to publish Game of Thrones Ascent, a a social game based on HBO's hit series that has been developed by startup Disruptor Beam. Zynga has slowly but steadily been adding games and developers to its publishing network, and is hoping the efforts, together with its Zynga.com site and Zynga with Friends social network, will lessen its dependence on home-grown Facebook games, which (with an exception or two) haven't been faring well lately.
