Traveller's Tales (1990)

Type :  

  Summary  

Traveller's Tales is an English software house founded in 1989 and fully established in 1990 and based in Knutsford, Cheshire.

It is part of the TT Games group—after the merger of publisher Giant Interactive and the developer Traveller's Tales—along with TT Games Publishing. Although, in its early years, the software house developed various games based on original content, since 1999 it mainly focused on the development of tie-ins based on movies, TV shows and television series.

  Biography  

Traveller's Tales started developing games with Psygnosis, which were most notable for creating 3D effects, possibly in order to add minor realism. Their first game was Leander, also known as The Legend of Galahad. With Psygnosis they also did a video game adaption of Bram Stoker's Dracula, as well as other original productions like Puggsy. And thanks to an agreement between Psygnosis / Sony Imagesoft and Disney, Traveller's Tales could produce several games based on Disney's properties, such as the Mickey Mouse game Mickey Mania and other games based on Pixar movies like Toy Story, Toy Story 2 and Finding Nemo .

However, Traveller's Tales was best known in the '90s for their second-party collaboration with Sega to develop games based on the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise, resulting in Sonic 3D and Sonic R, which were produced in close effort with Sega's Sonic Team. Both games were regarded as technical achievements in the Mega Drive and the Sega Saturn , adding to the high-tech development status they already had with games like Puggsy, Mickey Mania and Toy Story.

In the most recent years, they are renowned because of the hugely successful Lego Star Wars: The Video Game. 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. One of their most recent releases is Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 while Lord of the Rings has been rumored.

Harmonix Music Systems & TT Games announced a game which is a hybrid of a first-person shooter & a music game to be released in the near future on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 & Wii U.

The company was originally located in a small office in Southport, England, but later moved to larger offices in Knutsford, in Cheshire.
