Frozen Codebase was an independent video game developer founded in 2006 by Ben Geisler. The company developed games for Xbox 360,[1] Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Wii and WiiWare.

History[edit]

On May 16, 2008, [2] Frozen Codebase and the Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA), announced a license agreement for Frozen Codebase to produce a video game based upon the sport of Roller Derby.[3]

On July 22, 2009, [4] Konami and Adult Swim announced that Frozen Codebase is the developer of the Metalocalypse game Metalocalypse: Dethgame, a PS3 and Xbox 360 downloadable game. Dethgame was previewed at Comic Con 2009.[5][6] But in July 2010, the game was confirmed to be cancelled by publisher Konami Digital Entertainment "in light of creative differences".[7]

In early 2012, Frozen Codebase was liquidated by ZyQuest, and quickly reformed as Zymo Entertainment, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of ZyQuest Inc. [8]

As of early 2015, a handful of Frozen Codebase veterans have formed a game consulting company known as Thawed Codebase.[9] Among Thawed Codebase's credited contract work includes Batman: Arkham Origins.
