Who is NetDevil?
NetDevil was founded in 1997 in Louisville, CO as an independently owned and operated game development company dedicated to the construction of massively multiplayer universes. NetDevil is committed to creating immersive, interactive virtual worlds in unique settings outside the typical fantasy genre. NetDevil has steadily grown from 3 part-timers to over 100 full time developers, with development led by Scott Brown, Peter Grundy, and Ryan Seabury. In July 2008, NetDevil was acquired by privately-held Gazillion Entertainment of San Mateo, CA.
Why A NetDevil?
NetDevil was chosen as a name because of our obsession with cool scary things that live in the deep dark waters of the world. All of the company's principals are certified SCUBA divers, including one certified dive master. We love exploring the mysteries of strange worlds, different from the everyday world we are used to... a passion we carry into our game world designs.

NetDevil's first title, Jumpgate, broke ground in the MMO space for both action gameplay and a space combat setting. Built by a development team of less than 6 people, Jumpgate was well received by the gaming press at its launch in 2001. NetDevil is currently maintaining Jumpgate worldwide.
NetDevil followed up Jumpgate with Auto Assault in conjunction with publishing partner NCsoft, a worldwide leader in online games. Auto Assault offers a post-apocalyptic game world, combining fast action gameplay with role-playing elements, using vehicular combat for a different "spin" on MMO gaming.
NetDevil's latest and biggest project to date is LEGO Universe, the first MMOG professionally developed for LEGO fans and supported by community members from around the world. NetDevil is also involved in numerous other projects and explorations, such as Warmonger, the first step in NetDevil's pursuit of a vision that will change the way online shooters are played, and Jumpgate Evolution which is a new MMO game featuring exhilarating space combat on a vast scale.
