History Edit

Founding (1994–2000) Edit

Before Gingo Animation started its video game division, the studio solely licensed games as merchandise. Among the games published this way was the 1992 Gabriel Garza video game for the NES, SNES, Genesis, Game Boy, Master System, and Game Gear.

Gingo officially launched its video game division Gingo Interactive Software LLC in 1994, with the announcement of a 3D Gabriel Garza video game as its first title. The game was released in 1996 for the PlayStation and was a commercial success. For its launch, the studio signed with Sony Computer Entertainment a four-year deal to develop games for the PlayStation.

In 1999, it was announced that the operations of the Gingo Interactive and Northwood Interactive would be merged into a new unit, the Gingo Interactive Group.
