Independent multi-studio developer Foundation 9 Entertainment is the "secret weapon" of the videogame industry says CEO James North-Hearn.
There's "no other" studio that can "claim more titles" on the XBLA platform. 15 percent of XBLA titles are theirs, equalling around 45 of the 300.
The indie developer cited "internal sales statistics and royalty sheets" when conjuring the $22 million sales figure from Xbox Live Arcade. "No other developer can claim more titles on the platform," said Foundation 9 in a statement.
Backbone Entertainment, Double Helix, Griptonite, ImaginEngine, Pipeworks and Sumo Digital all make up the Foundation 9 Entertainment studio entity.
It has been Backbone driving the primary force of sales on XBLA releasing titles such as Capcom's Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix and Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, Hudson's Bomberman Live and more.
"Foundation 9 Entertainment is the game industry’s secret weapon," said Foundation 9 CEO James North-Hearn. "While most consumers don’t know our name, the biggest and best-loved game publishers around the world turn to Foundation 9 Entertainment to build games for all genres and platforms."
While they will continue to pursue digital platform titles they aren't going to neglect retail box releases, having worked on Lego Rock Band, Silent Hill Homecoming, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader, Night at the Museum: Battle for the Smithsonian and Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing.
