were briefly known as Hipnotic Entertainment
. They cut their teeth making the excellent Scourge of Armagon
. At that time they were working from one of the employees homes, and got into trouble with the law
for running a business in a residential area
. There is a rumour from this time that regular visits from John Romero
(wearing - I kid you not - a cape
) had convinced neighbours that they was a drugs ring
operating from inside the house.
They went on to produce the immense pile of suckage that was SiN and the (apparently not that bad) F.A.K.K.2 tie-in game. Their next project is probably another shooter. Developers with a similar background and area of expertise include Id Software (natch), Raven Software, Rogue, Ion Storm and Xatrix Entertainment (now Grey Matter).
