History

While they worked closely with Disney, producing several games based on their movies (mostly those by Pixar, such as Toy Story and Finding Nemo), they are best known for Sonic 3D, Sonic R and the hugely successful Lego Star Wars: The Video Game as well as games also made by Psygnosis which they were most notable for creating 3D effects, possibly in order to add minor realism. Their first game was Leander. They also did a video game adaption of Bram Stoker's Dracula.

Their recent work includes the popular franchise Crash Bandicoot, The Chronicles of Narnia, Super Monkey Ball Adventure Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, and WRC and F1 for the PSP. They have sold over 60 million games to date, and have won two BAFTAs; one for Gameplay with Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, and one for Children's Videogame of the Year for Lego Batman: The Video Game.

The company was purchased by Warner Bros. at the end of November 8, 2007, but will continue to operate, with the development of Lego Batman: The Video Game, which came out in September 2008. Lego Harry Potter: Years 1–4 is currently in development[1][2] while Lego Lord of the Rings has been rumored.[3]
