Hothead Games Inc. is an independent Canadian video game developer based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The studio was founded in 2006 by Steve Bocska, Vlad Ceraldi and Joel DeYoung, all three of which were formerly employed by Radical Entertainment.[1] However, Bocska left the company again in 2007.[1] On 10 March 2009, Ian Wilkinson, who had been president and chief executive officer of Radical Entertainment since its foundation in 1991 until 2008, became president and chief executive officer of Hothead Games, replacing Ceraldi.[1] In turn, Ceraldi became the studio's director of game development, while DeYoung moved from his chief operating officer position to director of game technology.[1]
