NEON Software GmbH

Developer

NEON Software was a German development studio founded in 1993 by Antony Christoulakis, Boris Triebel, Jan Jöckel, Michael Büttner, and Peter Thierolf. The latter previously co-founded Kaiko in late 1990. A little later Matthias Wiederwach (also with Kaiko) joined as a shareholder.

The company was purchased by JoWooD Entertainment AG in 2000. Triebel left in 2003 and went on to co-found the development studio ZEAL GmbH. NEON's last title was the PS2 game Legend of Kay (2005). JoWood ran into financial difficulties and in late 2005 NEON was closed and all developers were let go. Former employees went on to work at other German developers and some founded the German studio 49Games GmbH.
