Overview edit · view history

Random Games, Inc. began in 1985 as Random Programming, specializing in programming games for Virgin Interactive and Microprose. In 1994, Random Programming expanded to become a full-fledged development house, capable of producing all aspects of their potential product in-house. They offered a full graphics and audio studio, programming group, Internet technology team and quality assurance department.

In July 2000, the President and CEO of the company was Randall Masteller. In October 2000, Random announced the completion of Talisman, a Windows conversion based on the fantasy board game, and that they were seeking a publisher, hoping to achieve a Q1 2001 release date. However, the company went out business in mid-2001 and the game was never published.
