Founded in 1994, Insomniac Games is an independent game developer with studios in Burbank, Calif. and Durham, NC. Prior to founding Insomniac, CEO/President Ted Price spent a few years as controller of a start-up medical company, where he decided that life in games must be easier. (He was wrong…) Fortunately, he found two very talented programmers, Alex and Brian Hastings, and together they laid the foundation for Insomniac’s first success, Disruptor.
In 15 years, they’ve sold more than 32 million console videogames worldwide. All of their titles have been developed exclusively for PS one, the PlayStation 2, and the PlayStation 3 -- where they’ve developed more games and sold more copies collectively than any competitor so far.
Insomniac has produced three of PlayStation’s most recognizable franchises: Resistance, Ratchet & Clank and the first three Spyro the Dragon games.
As of 2009, Insomniac Games has grown to 195 hard-working, creative souls and remains completely independent despite a close working relationship with their publisher, Sony Computer Entertainment.
