More about YoYo Games:

YoYo Games was founded in 2007 by a group of leading Games and Entertainment industry executives including James North-Hearn, CEO Foundation9,  Michel Cassius, ex European Marketing Director Xbox and Spencer Hyman, formerly COO Last.FM.  The company, headed by CEO, Sandy Duncan (ex Vice President of Xbox Europe), was created to support the founders' belief that a new generation of games development talent and devices was emerging and there was an opportunity to incubate and showcase some of the very best of this talent on these new and existing platforms.

In 2007 YoYo Games acquired the rights to GameMaker from Prof Mark Overmars.  Mark, who launched GameMaker in 1999 joined the YoYo Games board at that time and has since become an active member of the Executive management team.
