Company description

Playmates Interactive Entertainment publishes games for the PC, PlayStation, and Saturn platforms. A subsidiary of Playmates Toys Holdings Ltd., best known for the megapopular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles action figures, PIE got off to a prosperous start by producing the well-known platform games Earthworm Jim 1 and 2.

Playmates' PC games publishing history has seen the company pick up the rights to some promising titles, most notably Shiny Entertainment's action game MDK. Meanwhile, the Playmates' toy-producing side has taken Shiny's Earthworm Jim character to TV cartoon and toy prominence. Forthcoming publishing deals include the rights to a game based on the outrageous Duckman cartoon.

These titles come on the back of Powerslave, a first-person shooter with an Egyptian theme. The beat-'em-up genre has enjoyed limited success on the PC platform, but Playmates' port of the PlayStation title Battle Arena Toshinden proved that the PC could offer arcade-style speed and quality.
