TalonSoft is a leading developer and publisher of PC CD-ROM strategy, simulation, and action games. Jim Rose, producer of award-winning board and computer games for Avalon Hill, founded the company in 1995. TalonSoft’s Battleground Series earned the distinction of being one of the few product lines to be inducted in its entirety into the Computer Gaming World “Hall of Fame”. In 1998, TalonSoft demonstrated to the industry that the company was here to stay for good as The Operational Art of War won the coveted title of “Wargame of the Year” from nearly every major computer gaming publication. In early 1999, TalonSoft’s success as a developer and publisher was recognized when the company was acquired by leading software publisher, Take-Two Interactive. With the extensive resources of Take-Two behind it, TalonSoft made the move into “triple-A” publishing by releasing Hidden & Dangerous and Jagged Alliance 2. Both games debuted at the top of the sales charts and produced record sales for the company. In 2000, TalonSoft is focused on solidifying its position as a market-leading game publisher and continuing to branch out into new directions.
