Wahoo Studios is a computer and video game development company based in Orem, Utah. Founded in 2001, the company largely served as consultants or on a contract basis working with larger gaming companies such as Electronic Arts, until more recently making a name for themselves. Historically, the development house has mostly been responsible for console games before breaking into full titles for the PC. With the release of the Xbox 360, the firm has once again moved back into the console domain, supporting Xbox Live Arcade with multiple releases, including "Outpost Kaloki X".

When developing original titles using internal capital, Wahoo Studios is recognized as NinjaBee.

Events / History

Wahoo Studios owes its roots to another Utah-based video game developer, Saffire. As Saffire encountered difficulties in 2001, Steve Taylor, the founder and president of Wahoo Studios, as well as a number of other employees, left to find more stable employment elsewhere.

In January 2007, Wahoo Studios announced that they will be joining the MMO genre with "Saga", an MMORTS, based in a persistent world for the PC.
