About the Company

Over a quarter century we’ve become one of the biggest independent developers out there, and house some of the finest talent in the video game industry.  We got our start in the PC, Super Nintendo and Genesis era of gaming, rode the educational CD-ROM wave through the 90’s, and eventually found our way back onto handhelds and consoles.  We’ve built our reputation on solid gaming fundamentals, feature-quality character animation, and flexibility and know-how when it comes to bringing entertainment brands into the world of gaming – both original characters of our own design, or comic book and tinsel town favorites.  Over the last few years we’ve become mainstays in the area of rebooting classic game series.
