GarageGames was founded in 2000 after Sierra shutdown its subsidiary company Dynamix by four ex-employees;  Jeff Tunnell, Tim Gift, Rick Overman, and Mark Frohnmayer.  The name originated after the team of four, quite literally, worked in a garage to release the first iteration of their Torque Game Engine, a modified version of the Tribes 2 engine, in August of 2001.  Their aim was, and still is, to provide the necessary tools to anyone interested in making and publishing games without having to pay a high-end price. 
In 2007, after Barry Diller and InteractiveCorp bought a majority share of the company, GarageGames announced development of a new game platform called InstantAction.  The site went public in March of 2008 and currently hosts 8 games, a number of which were created by GarageGames themselves.
