History[edit]

Sculptured Software Inc. was founded by Bryan Brandenburg, George Metos, Peter Adams, Mike Macris and Bob Burgener.[1] Paul Webb was usually the in-house composer.

Sculptured Software Inc. was acquired (in an all-stock transaction) by Acclaim Entertainment in October 1995.[2] The Company was renamed Iguana West in 1997 (Sometimes named as Iguana SLC) and then Acclaim Studios Salt Lake City in 1999. The studio was closed in December 2002 due to Acclaim's financial problems and the remaining operations were transferred to Acclaim Studios Austin.[3]
