Humongous Entertainment is a division of Tommo.

Foundation

In 1992, Ron Gilbert and Shelly Day founded Humongous Entertainment, a video game developer that focused on adventure games and sports games for children.

Subsidiary of Atari

The company was purchased by GT Interactive in 1996, which was in turn sold to Infogrames, whose US branch became Atari in 2003. In 2005, Atari sold Humongous Entertainment back to the main Infogrames branch in France.

Humongous

Infogrames renamed Humongous Entertainment to Humongous in 2006.

Subsidiary of Tommo

Atari filed for bankruptcy in January 2013, and Tommo purchased Humongous at the bankruptcy auction in July 2013. Tommo renamed the company back to Humongous Entertainment.

The rights to some franchises are no longer owned by Humongous Entertainment, as they were purchased by other companies at the Atari bankruptcy auction in July 2013. The rights to the Backyard Sports series were purchased by The Evergreen Group, and the rights to Moonbase Commander were purchased by Rebellion.
