1UP.com Explores Bungie's History
8:20 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

In a short feature on the origins of some well known game companies, 1UP.com briefly discussed Bungie's history before the days of Halo and the Microsoft buyout.

One of life's little ironies is that Microsoft's ace in the hole started out as a fervent Macintosh supporter. Mac-first hits like Marathon and Myth are the stuff of legend nowadays, but funnily enough, you don't hear much about the company's debut title, a black-and-white piece of freeware called Gnop. (Spell it backward and you'll realize that Bungie's reputation for creativity was something it didn't earn right out of the starting gate.)
The article also discusses a time when Rockstar North's (Grand Theft Auto) most controversial title was Lemmings. For the entire trip down memory lane click on over to 1UP.com at the link below.
