"Philos Laboratories (also known as Philos Laboratories Software Developer Ltd. or simply Philos Labs) was a Hungarian computer software development company known for working with producer Ubisoft and CDV Software Entertainment.
The company was originally founded in 1995, working mostly on making graphics for advertisements. It was not until 1997, when several developers of the game Perihelion: The Prophecy were hired, that they started making their first title, what would eventually become Theocracy.
It was eventually disbanded in 2004, amid lawsuits of software piracy and much debated financial ventures."
