Game Developer Family Tree

A site called Check Your HUD has put together a family tree of game developers. What I like most about this is the attempt to show the relationships between the companies including: mergers, splits, name changes, and companies formed by former members of another company.

If you are familiar with the Silicon Valley Genealogy Chart, this is along the same lines.

I would also be remiss if I didn’t go ahead and link to Mark Granovetter and the Silicon Valley Network Analysis Project. If you haven’t heard of Dr. Granovetter’s work, you may find it interesting.

We’ll return to social network analysis and corporate relationships in some future postings.

(Tip of the hat to Kotaku for the link.)
