Trendy Entertainment is an American independent game development studio, founded by Agapitus Lye and Jeremy Stieglitz. It is located in Gainesville, Florida. Trendy Entertainment is a developer of Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Windows, iOS, and Android platform games.
Trendy Entertainment developed the indie title Dungeon Defense in 4 weeks using the Unreal Engine, which was released on February 4, 2010. The game formed the basis for Dungeon Defenders, released on October 19, 2011.
A 2013 investigation by Kotaku magazine found the company to be a poor employer, citing a sexist work environment that demanded excessive work hours. The company removed Stieglitz from their upcoming Dungeon Defenders 2 release shortly after.
