Particle Systems Ltd. was a computer game developer based in Sheffield, England. The company was founded by Glyn Williams and Michael Powell. Games developed by Particle Systems include Independence War and its sequel Independence War 2: Edge of Chaos and Powerdrome (xBox). The company was working on tactical combat game EXO, when it was acquired by Argonaut Games in January 2002[1] and became Argonaut's Sheffield studios. Under this new guise the company successfully released Lego Bionicle and submitted a number of interesting demos for Star Wars, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Zorro. Argonaut Sheffield was closed in late October 2004 when Argonaut games was put into administration.[2]
