Humongous Entertainment was originally formed in 1992 and throughout a history of more than 20 years has sold well over 15 Million games to fans young and old who enjoyed their wonderful iconic characters, classic animated adventures and age appropriate challenging software.
Humongous is a brand parents of today grew up with. It has always represented quality products and brands parents can trust to both entertain and educate their children.We’re committed to offering all of the classic titles and new products that meet these standards across multiple platforms and devices,” said Jonathan Wan, CEO of Tommo, Inc. “Today many of our most popular games are now available for download on the iTunes and Google Play and Amazon App Stores. To support the effort, we also launched Humongous.com this year and created Club Humongous where eager fans are able to discover the latest news and product releases.”
Now I'm more curious about what assets they have exactly. We know the Backyard Sports and Moonbase Commander both went to separate companies, but does Tommo own the Big Thinkers games? Plus, I believe the Jr. Field Trips were co-created and co-owned by Random House, so I have no idea about them.
It's something that could be asked via Twitter or Facebook, though I dunno about receiving a transparent response.
As well as "Let's Play Shorties" of Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon...
...and Fatty Bear's Birthday Surprise.
I posted in r/games to guage how many people would purchase these games if they were re-released on GOG. The timing seems good as Tommo recently finalized their takeover the IP -
Obviously I won't be buying any unless Humongous/Tommo releases DRM-free versions somewhere - GOG, Humble Store, Big Fish Games, etc.
