Year of death
Established in 1987 by coder Martyn Chudley in the north-west of England, Raising Hell would produce THE KILLING GAME SHOW and WIZ 'N' LIZ for the Amiga and Mega Drive before being purchased by Sega in 1993. Expressing a dislike for the demonic overtones of the developer's name, Sega requested a name change and they became Bizarre Creations in early 1994.
As Bizarre Creations, the developer became best-known for producing console racing games - Metropolis Street Racer (Dreamcast), the Project Gotham Racing series (Xbox, Xbox 360) and Blur (PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360). The latter was released in May 2010 after being acquired by Activision in 2007. However, Bizarre Creations was dissolved by Activision a handful of months later in February 2011 following a failed attempt to find a buyer for the development team.

Year of death
Began its days in Liverpool, UK as a games publisher for platforms such as the Apple II, Macintosh and C64. As one of the pioneers of the Amiga games industry, Psygnosis was arguably responsible for selling more Amiga computers than any other publisher with their releases of SHADOW OF THE BEAST and LEMMINGS.
Psygnosis was acquired by Sony in 1993, which resulted in much of their attention being diverted from the Amiga to development of proprietary 3D graphics technology and CDROM games in preparation for an assault on the console and PC markets. Psygnosis' efforts would be rewarded when they were handed a major role by Sony in the launch of the PlayStation in 1995.
In 1998, Eidos purchased Psygnosis' European operations, while their U.S. operations were absorbed by Sony's own development outfit 989 Studios. The Psygnosis label was eventually abandoned by Sony in 2000.
