George Metos incorporated the company on July 12, 1985 in the state of Utah with the help of some investors, as Sculptured Software, Inc.

Two of Sculptured Software's first in-house games were Ninja and Street Surfer. Sculptured Software stayed very busy and successful, with over 50 games to its credit, so it is of no surprise that the company became a target for acquisition by larger companies.
