Crawfish Interactive Ltd.

Overview edit · view history

Crawfish Interactive was a developer of Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance titles, founded by Cameron Sheppard in March 1997. They developed over 40 games, but the company folded in November 2002. From June thorough to November publisher interest was unsure on the GBA. Crawfish had many titles finishing and a number of publishers not paying on time. These issues joined meant that the company couldn't continue quite long enough.

Nine employees moved on to Climax, where they joined the newly-founded Climax Handheld.

History +

November 15th, 2002

Crawfish, multiformat codeshop and outstanding Game Boy Advance developers, have closed their doors for good.

The last game the company released was the Game Boy Advance conversion of Street Fighter Alpha 3 Zero Upper, which has been well received despite being stuck in development hell for the past six months or so. Crawfish also gave the world the delightful Ecks vs Sever on Game Boy Advance, which we awarded 7/10 when it was released late last year.

The closure of Crawfish means that the titles they had in development probably won't see the light of day now, including Game Boy Advance versions of two Amgia games, Wings and Gods. Hopefully another developer will finish them off, as Wings was a game of greatness and we'd hate to see it vanish into the great white void along with Crawfish.
