Creator: Argonaut Software
Argonaut Software was a video game company based in Edgware, North London, UK. It was founded in 1980 by Jez San as a software consulting firm, but made its mark later in the decade as a developer of 3D flight-simulation games.A 3D engine for the Game Boy created by Argonaut programmer Dylan Cuthbert (who later became an employee of Sony Computer Entertainment and the founder of Q Games) attracted the attention of Nintendo, which led to the two companies jointly developing several games and the famous "Super FX" 3D graphics accelerator for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.ARC International, a subsidiary company that developed RISC processors, was spun off in 1999.Argonaut became a publicly traded company, Argonaut Games Plc, in 2000, and proceeded to acquire several small independent studios over the next few years. This expanded company was not to last; in 2004, the company's stock was delisted and all its studios were sold off or closed.
