Founded in 1990 by John Romero, Tom Hall, Todd Porter, and Jerry O'Flaherty, Ion Storm was most famous for its FPS/RPG game Deus Ex, and Daikatana (considered the biggest commercial flop of all-time). With the promise of blockbuster games, with the team united under the slogan 'Design as Law', Ion Storm failed to live up to the hype with many famous mis-steps until it closed in early 2005.

Notable titles include Deus Ex, Daikatana, Anachronox and Thief: Invisible Shadows
