Saffire Corporation was a contract video game developer located in American Fork, Utah. It is noted both for porting games and making some original titles. It started as a game development studio founded originally as Cygnus Multimedia by Les Pardew in the early 90's. It was started in Pardew's basement and had six employees in the initial stage.

In 1994, it changed its name to Saffire Corporation and was later headed up by Sculptured Software co-founder, Hal Rushton. They released their last title, Thunderbirds, in 2004 and went out of business sometime afterwards.
