Absolute Entertainment, Inc.

Overview

Absolute Entertainment was founded in 1986 by former Activision designers and programmers David Crane, Dan Kitchen and Garry Kitchen.

The name was specifically chosen to have the company listed alphabetically above Activision (and Accolade), just as Activision did in the past to be listed above Atari.

The company had a successful run in their early life, but in the later part of the 1990's, their sales slowly declined. The company eventually folded in 1995. Most of the employees went to Skyworks Technologies when the company went out of business.

Trivia

The company created the game "Penn and Teller's Smoke and Mirrors" for the Sega CD. The game was finished, but never released due to the company going out of business in 1995. There were planned, but unfinished, PC and 3DO ports as well.
