The company lasted until the late 1990s, by which time it had begun making "games for girls" for the PC (under the moniker Her Interactive), beginning with McKenzie & Co.. This change in direction marked the end of American Laser Games commercial success, and the company eventually closed its doors and was bought out by Her Interactive, which had been spun off before ALG closing and is still making games today. In 2000, the development and publishing rights to all of the games that were produced by American Laser Games were purchased by Digital Leisure, Inc from Her Interactive. Many of these games were then re-released for the PC and in DVD TV game format.
The company also released a light-gun controller, the PC Gamegun, for home computer use. It proved unsuccessful, however, due to its poor accuracy.
