Compare to Creator/ZombieStudios, a similar American game developer that, like Gearbox Software, is an independent company that developed games for a multitude of major companies and used the Unreal Engine extensively.

* OneOfUs: Yes, they ''are'' game developers, but the sheer number of Shout Outs present in their games qualifies them for this status again.



* SleeperHit: Actually backed up by sales figures - Pitchford noted in more than one interview that ''Borderlands'' actually sold better as time went on (compared to usual burst of sales at release and slow trickle afterwards), thanks to good word of mouth.
* {{Vaporware}}: [[DefiedTrope Defied]] by their rescuing of ''Duke Nukem Forever''.

'''Gearbox Software''' is a Texas-based video game developer.

They got their start making {{Expansion Pack}}s and [[UsefulNotes/SoftwarePorting Ports]] for the ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life|1}}'' series, which were generally regarded somewhere between SoOkayItsAverage and pretty good. They came into their own when they released ''VideoGame/BrothersInArms'' for the PC and Xbox, an original IP that managed to sell very well despite its lack of pedigree and very [[FacklerScaleOfFPSRealism realistic approach to the FPS genre]].
