Troika Games

Troika Games

Troika Games was a computer game developer focused on computer role-playing games. It was founded in 1998 by three key members of the team behind the RPG Fallout -- Tim Cain, Leonard Boyarsky and Jason Anderson -- after they left Interplay.

Troika, from a Russian word meaning "three of any kind", released three games, all RPGs, before going out of business in February 2005: Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura, The Temple of Elemental Evil, and Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines. Bloodlines was also the first game to license Valve Software's Source engine, released on the same day as Half-Life 2.

Arcanum, Troika's first release, was launched in Fall 2001. In 2003, the company would follow up with The Temple of Elemental Evil. In 2004, Troika released Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines.

In early 2005, Troika ran into financial trouble, and was eventually forced to lay off all its staff and begin selling assets.

Ex-Troika staff have been picked up by the following companies:
