Scavenger, Inc.

Overview

Scavenger, Inc., with offices in Boston, California, Denmark, England, Sweden, was a short-lived interactive entertainment company specializing in the development of video games for the IBM PC, Sega, Sony and the Nintendo home systems.

The President of the company in 1996 was Daniel Small. In April of that year, Scavenger and GT Interactive Software Corp. entered into a publishing agreement for several titles:
  • Into the Shadows, "a state-of-the-art fantasy adventure game" (never released)
  • Amok
  • 4x4 Frenzy, "a monster truck challenge" (never released)
  • Scorcher
Problems occurred between the two companies concerning GT Interactive's failure to pay according to contract, and a lawsuit resulted. Debt forced Scavenger to close its doors in approximately 1997. Even though Scavenger was awarded $1.9 million in the Supreme Court settlement (Feb. 2000), it was not enough to resurrect the company.
