  • Bullfrog Productions was a British computer game developer, founded in 1987 by Les Edgar and Peter Molyneux. The company achieved recognition in 1989 for their third release, Populous. At the time of the company's founding, Edgar and Molyneux were already involved in an enterprise called Taurus Impact Systems. Bullfrog's name was derived from "Taurus" and Edgar's daughter's love of frogs. Electronic Arts, Bullfrog's publisher, acquired the studio in January 1995. Molyneux had become an Electronic Arts vice-president and consultant in 1994, after EA purchased a significant share of Bullfrog. Molyneux's last project with Bullfrog was Dungeon Keeper and he left the company in August 1997 to found Lionhead Studios. Other members of the studio founded Mucky Foot Productions in 1998. The last titles to bear the Bullfrog logo were published in 2001. Bullfrog cancelled many projects, such as Theme Resort, Creation, B.C., The Indestructibles, Unity and Milo and Kate, to mention some. In 2004, Bullfrog Productions was merged with EA UK, effectively closing the studio. Les Edgar became EA's Vice President of European Studios. In August 2009, Electronics Arts was considering revising some of Bullfrog's games for modern-day systems, and in 2011 they signed a deal with Good Old Games in order to do this. Wikipedia
