Insomniac Games, Inc. is an American video game developer based in Burbank, California. It was founded in 1994 by Ted Price as Xtreme Software and was renamed Insomniac Games a year later. The company is most known for developing several early PlayStation mascots, Spyro the Dragon, Ratchet, and Clank, as well as the Resistance franchise, 2014’s Sunset Overdrive, and 2018’s Spider-Man. In 2019, the studio was acquired by Sony Interactive Entertainment, becoming a part of SIE Worldwide Studios. The company’s first project was Disruptor, for PlayStation, whose poor sales almost led to the company’s bankruptcy. Insomniac’s next project was Spyro the Dragon, a successful video game that spawned two sequels within two years. Insomniac closely collaborated with Sony Computer Entertainment (later renamed Sony Interactive Entertainment) and created two game franchises, Ratchet & Clank, and Resistance.
