Petroglyph Games Inc.
Petroglyph Games Inc. is a video game developer based in Las Vegas, Nevada. The company was formed by a group of former Westwood Studios
employees who had resigned when Electronic Arts
merged Westwood Studios into the EA Pacific studios in Los Angeles. Other former Westwood employees initially accepted EA's relocation offer, but eventually returned to Las Vegas to work with Petroglyph. Coincidentally, the old Westwood Studios building is not that far away from the current Petroglyph building.
Petroglyph is primarily known for their strong experience in RTS game development. The company's founding members have worked on seminal and influential games in the genre, most notably Command & Conquer
and Dune II
, which established the template for modern RTS games. Petroglyph Games' employees average more than 12 years of industry experience.
After announcing a partnership with the publishing studio True Games Interactive
in April 2008, the action strategy title Mytheon
was revealed in December of the same year.
