Gray Matter was founded by Chris Gray in Oakville, Ontario, Canada in 1985 as Chris Gray Enterprises. The first title is Whirlinurd. The next title is Infiltrator from Mindscape. After the success of the title, Gray went off on his own to develop games as "Gray Matter". Before problems with the Canadian government over labor issues and a general decline in the entertainment market brought Gray Matter to bankruptcy, it was Canada's largest game developer.
