Insomniac Games, Inc. is an American video game developer whose corporate headquarters is located in Burbank, California. It was founded in 1994 by Ted Price as “Xtreme Software”, and was renamed “Insomniac Games” a year later. It has released titles for the PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Playstation 4 and Xbox One video game consoles.
The company’s first project was Disruptor, for the first PlayStation console, whose poor sales almost led to the company’s bankruptcy. Insomniac’s next project was Spyro the Dragon, a successful video game that spawned two sequels within two years. Insomniac then developed a new franchise, Ratchet & Clank, for the PlayStation 2. The company also developed the Resistance series for the PlayStation 3, and released its first multi-platform game, Fuse in 2013. The company also worked with Microsoft Studios on 2014’s Sunset Overdrive. The company’s current projects include a 2016 remake of Ratchet & Clank, an underwater Metroidvania game called Song of the Deep, and an Oculus Rift action-adventure game titled Edge of Nowhere.
