History

The Company was founded in 1997 in Guildford, United Kingdom[1] by three ex-Bullfrog developers: Mike Diskett, Fin McGechie and Guy Simmons.

A worldwide publishing deal with the UK publisher Eidos was announced in October 1997. That announcement was also used to announce Muckyfoot's first game "Urban Chaos". At this point the game was referred to by its earlier work in progress name of "Dark City".[2]

Over their lifetime Mucky Foot went on to release three titles: Urban Chaos, StarTopia, and Blade II.

Despite high initial expectations, the company closed its doors in late 2003.[3] This company closure saw three further games cease development while still only part produced: Bulletproof Monk, The Punisher, and Urban Chaos 2.[4]

After the company closed, their official website remained active. However, its content at closure was replaced with the developer's internal quote sheet.[5]
