The company was founded in 1997. According to the website, it started at the roots of Microsoft, where the co-founders worked in a variety of productivity and software development applications. The brand name came as one of several proposed by the company they did not use at Microsoft due to policies. Chris Zimmerman showed the options to his wife for her opinion, but she did not care “as long as it isn’t ‘Sucker Punch’.” They selected it as the company name. Its first game, Rocket: Robot on Wheels was published by Ubisoft. The company’s first series Sly Cooper, featured levels and cel-shaded anthropomorphic animals.
