Gray Matter Inc. was a Canadian video game development company founded in 1985 by Chris Gray in Oakville, Ontario, Canada.

History[edit]

Chris, driven by the success of his video game Infiltrator, published by Mindscape, ventured on his own to create his own company. He established Gray Matter Inc. as a division of Chris Gray Enterprises Inc. It was located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Chris Gray got his start in the video game industry by co-developing the smash-hit Boulder Dash for the Atari 8-bit in 1984. In 1988, a sister company was created, Imagexcel. Imagexcel along with Gray Matter created Techno Cop and The Ultimate Ride. The two companies parted ways in 1994. Gray Matter Inc. closed down in 1997[1][2] soon after the releases of Perfect Weapon and The Crow: City of Angels, both failures.
