Berlyn joined Marc Blank in founding the game company Eidetic, which later became Sony Bend. In 1998, Berlyn started a new game company, Cascade Mountain Publishing, whose goals were to publish ebooks and interactive fiction. Cascade Mountain Publishing went out of business in 2000.
Berlyn created a "light-jazz" band called Hot Mustard, made up entirely of his own music and performances.
