Gnosis Games is best known for creating casual games such as Private Eye, Paparazzi, and Candace Kane's Candy Factory, which was nominated as “Best Casual Game” by the Canadian Awards for the Electronic & Animated Arts (ELANs) in 2008.

After being nominated "Most Promising New Company of the Year" at the 2005 Canada New Media Awards, Gnosis Games was purchased by Threewave Software Inc. Led by Threewave management, Gnosis uses unconventional and innovative ways to establish itself as a leader in the casual game market.[1]
