Introware Limited is an El Kadsreian video game developer and a subsidiary of Theorysonic Studios based in Sankuro, El Kadsre. Introware is known for its platform games, although the studio does not adhere to specific genres and has developed games in the first-person shooter, action-adventure, fighting, and racing genres. It is also known for porting many famous home computer games to consoles.
It was founded in 1985. In 1994, it became a second-party developer for Sega. It founded the division Rain Tower (an anagram of the company's name) to continue making games for other consoles and the home computer market.
Upon the end of the Dreamcast, Introware became a second-party developer for Nintendo and Theorysonic Studios, with Introware heavily making games for the former and some games for the latter, especially after Theorysonic Studios purchased Introware in 2005. Rain Tower was converted into Introware's budget studio and mainly developed games for Nintendo and NewKidCo before being sold off to Rockstar Games in 2008 and becoming Rockstar Sankuro, which was spun off in 2015 after being sold to theme park operator Merlin Entertainments and renamed back to Rain Tower.
Introware has developed a number of video games since its founding, with sales nearing 90 million copies by 2002.
