Video game producers '''[=WayForward=] Technologies''' (founded in 1990 by actor-turned-programmer Voldi Way, and named for a joke in a [[Literature/DirkGentlysHolisticDetectiveAgency novel]] by Creator/DouglasAdams) first established themselves as a reliable maker of product licensed to them by other companies -- they began to make their mark with an adaptation of ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'', which made the astute decision of treating it as a ''game'' first and a ''licensed'' game second. They've gone on to avoid TheProblemWithLicensedGames in much of their subsequent work -- so much so that when Creator/{{Konami}} decided to contract out to an external developer for ''[[VideoGame/{{Contra}} Contra 4]]'', they went with [=WayForward=].

But the company's true labor of love has been its original properties, most of which feature input from creative director Matt Bozon and legendary {{chiptune}} composer and sound designer Creator/JakeKaufman (a.k.a. virt).
