Creator: Harmonix

Harmonix, or Harmonix Music Systems in full, is a videogame developer in Cambridge, Massachusetts. As the name might imply, they work primarily on the Rhythm Game genre. The main reason behind this is because many, if not most of their developers are passionate about music and even have side projects related to their bands, such as Freezepop, That Handsome Devil and Bang Camaro (this is why many games feature their music).

The company was founded in 1995, but it wasn't until 2001 that their first game, Frequency, was released. They are perhaps most well known for starting the Guitar Hero franchise, and the Rock Band and Dance Central franchises.
