Marlin Studios -- the early years . . .
Marlin Studios was originally a game development company, providing design and game graphics to larger developers. When the company's first website was created, it was one of only six sites devoted to 3D graphics on the "new" World Wide Web.
Most noteworthy of the early shareware games was Rings of the Magi, with co-design and graphics by founder Tom Marlin. In 1995, the DOS game was awarded the 9th Best Shareware Game of All Time by Computer Gaming World Magazine -- preceded only by such blockbuster titles as Wolfenstien, Doom, Commander Keen and Duke Nukem, to name a few. The game also was awarded the 1995 Puzzle Game of the Year. Marlin Studios had credits in about a half-dozen later titles and designed and developed its own game in 3D, The Roswell Omen, This was probably the most publicized game that never got to market due to unforeseen contractual publishing circumstances, changing market trends and technology advances.
During the gaming years, Marlin Studios found a lack of any highly usable texture maps and models for the game industry, so created its own set of textures, entitled Seamless Textures You Can ReallY Use. The company marketed and sold this library, then grew from there with many subsequent texture map and 3D model libraries.
Whether you're a large multi-million dollar firm, a government agency or a small studio with lots of talent, Marlin Studios can help you save time and money in developing your major projects. And Marlin Studios is always willing to negotiate an affordable licensing agreement for large projects and/or multi-user sites.
