Humongous Entertainment was founded in 1992 by CEO Shelley Day
and Creative Director Ron Gilbert
, both ex- Lucasarts
employees. Know for their cute characters and mini-games within their otherwise point-and-click adventure games, they became very successful in the early 1990's. However, the company lost prominence because of lots of companies buying different companies. It started in 1996 with a buyout by GT Interactive. GT Interactive was then indirectly purchased by Infogrames Inc. Infogrames Inc. then bought out Hasbro Interactive which had the rights to the Atari name, and in November 1999 Infogrames Inc. was reincorporated Atari, SA.
