Sega Technical Institute was an American video game developer active during the '90s, founded by Mark Cerny. It was an off-shoot of Sega, but unlike its corporate parent, it was based in the U.S. Though it was a critically acclaimed studio, it was merged back into Sega of America following corporate shake-ups in the wake of the immensely Troubled Production of Sonic X-treme.

Here is a documentary about the short-lived studio, and an article about it.

Tropes associated with STI:

  • Nintendo Hard: Nearly all of its games are brutally difficult- especially Kid Chameleon and Comix Zone- the former for its large amount of levels and tricky platforming, and the latter for only giving you one life Note  and hitting things slowly saps your life bar.
