Atari Is Bringing Back The Infogrames Label (And My Childhood)

Sheep, Dog 'n' Wolf remake when??

Atari has revealed that it’s bringing back an iconic video game label that nearly everyone who played games regularly between the 80s and early 2000s would have seen numerous times – Infogrames.

Infogrames developed a published a number of games in its 20+ years carrying the name, before it became Atari SA in a sweeping rebrand. It’s a title I would see flash up on my screen before many a PS1 game, including Bugs Bunny: Lost in Time (which was developed by Dead by Daylight studio, Behaviour Interactive!), Micro Machines and the absolute GOAT – Sheep, Dog ‘n’ Wolf.

It was also responsible for the original Alone in the Dark, a heap of racing and sports titles, licensed games for Disney and Warner Brothers and more. Former Melbourne development outfit, Krome Studios, was even Infogrames Melbourne House between 1999 and 2003.

For decades, Infogrames built a reputation as a publisher and developer of amazing and eclectic games, and we are excited to bring it back,” says Atari CEO, Wade Rosen in the announcement. The brand will be focused heavily on game preservation as well as physical and digital distribution of its catalogue of games, along with development of new sequels and “collections.”

Infogrames also revealed it’s acquired its very first new IP in the form of 2019’s Totally Reliable Delivery Service, which it says is a high-potential franchise that it plans to “re-energise.”

With Totally Reliable Delivery Service, Infogrames is starting off with a strong IP that has a loyal and enthusiastic player base,” says Geoffroy Châteauvieux, Manager of Infogrames LLC. “The Infogrames team will be able to expand upon the strong work of tinyBuild, and re-energize this high-potential franchise.”
