OverviewIridon Interactive is a producer of console and computer games based in Kungälv, Sweden. The company is carving a niche for itself by producing original action and arcade oriented titles for the value-priced market, and is currently developing for the Xbox’ video game system from Microsoft, Nintendo® Game Boy® Advance, and multimedia PCs.
The company was originally conceived in June 1997 by current C.E.O. and Executive Producer, Björn Larsson.
Iridon Interactive was formally incorporated as a publishing entity of computer games in February 1998. The company’s initial publishing endevours began with the concentration of producing and licensing of third-party titles from external development teams.
