About Tantalus
With our twentieth anniversary just around the corner and a portfolio of over forty titles on most major platforms, Tantalus is one of the world’s leading independent development studios. Renowned for handheld work on franchises such as SpongeBob, MX vs ATV, Cars, Ben 10 and the million-unit-selling Pony Friends, Tantalus also develops for the current generation of consoles. The next phase of growth and platform diversification will see the release of the company’s first Nintendo 3DS and smartphone titles as well as more digital distribution projects.

Pony Friends
Tantalus began life as a conversion house, adapting coin-op titles to console and PC. Despite tough schedules and impossible deadlines, Tantalus soon earned a reputation for consistency and reliability. Manx TT Superbike became a star attraction on the Sega Saturn while Area 51, The House of the Dead and Maximum Force rate among the other critical and commercial successes of those early years. Titles such as Monster Truck Madness helped Tantalus build a reputation as a world-leading developer on Game Boy Advance, culminating in the highly acclaimed Nintendo-published Top Gear Rally winning IGN Game of the Year.
