Crystal Dynamics Inc. is an American video game developer and former publisher that was founded in 1992, by the former Sega of America employees Judy Lang, Madeline Canepa and Dave Morris, and was based in the San Francisco Bay Area. They were intended to develop games exclusively for the fledgling 3DO Interactive Multiplayer, even being the very first publisher to back the console. However, as the 3DO proved to be a commercial failure, they began also producing games for the competing PlayStation and Saturn before abandoning the platform completely in 1995. They were acquired by Eidos Interactive in 1998, and later became a subsidiary of Square Enix in 2009, only to be sold to Embracer Group alongside Eidos-Montreal and Square Enix Montreal in 2022.

They have numerous titles to their name, but they are perhaps best known for the Gex trilogy, the Legacy of Kain series, and the Tomb Raider series, starting with Tomb Raider: Legend.
