Most recently we reinvented the world of toys and kids videogames by creating the ‘Toys to Life’ genre with Skylanders: Spyro’s Adventure.  We are proud of our game’s innovation and success, but more so the passion and joy we see in the millions of Skylanders fans around the world.  Our studio is located in Novato, California, a quick 20 minute drive north from the Golden Gate Bridge.  We are a mix of game-industry veterans, energetic new developers, and everything in-between.  We work hard, yet maintain a fun and laid-back work place complete with Tiki/Pirate Culture and a welcoming policy for friendly dogs.
