Gaming Ads: Working Designs

Founded in 1986 and based in Redding, California, Working Designs originally worked on management software but shifted focus after its co-founder and lead programmer Todd Marks passed away in 1988. Working Designs became a specialist in localizing popular Japanese games for the North American market. It skipped over cartridge-based systems to take advantage of compact discs, which at first meant publishing for Sega CD and TurboGrafx-CD before moving on to the Saturn and PlayStation. The publisher never released games for Nintendo or Microsoft platforms and did not support the Dreamcast due to a poor relationship between company president Victor Ireland and Bernie Stolar (first at Sony and then Sega). Following development issues and reduced sales the company closed in December 2005.
