Naughty Dog, Inc.
Naughty Dog was founded in 1984 by the then-sixteen-year-old Andy Gavin and Jason Rubin. In their own words, they "needed money to buy video games and stuff", so they "worked hard, and that's the whole story".
The company started as JAM software The first game it sold was Ski Crazed for Apple II. Jam Software also created Dream Zone (1988), a graphic adventure that was one of the first ones to support the PC's VGA graphics standard. Both of these early games were published by Baudville.
