According to Ken Williams, Sierra On-Line's CEO, he was quite upset when Tsunami was formed, and he threatened the company with litigation, because the new company would compete with Sierra and hired away many Sierra developers (as the credits of Ringworld: Revenge of the Patriarch demonstrate). A few years later, Jim Walls, the designer of Sierra's Police Quest series, joined the company as well, which resulted in Blue Force.

While Tsunami is the Japanese word for a tidal wave, Tsunami Media's name was actually derived from the late John Sandberg's propeller-driven Unlimited Gold racing airplane, Tsunami. Tragically, Mr. Sandberg was killed when his airplane crashed following the 1991 Reno Air Races.
