TT Games was formed two yeas ago, as the merger of the developer Traveller's Tales and publisher Giant Interactive Entertainment. Traveller's Tales has been on the market for 18 years and its games sold over 42 million copies across all major platforms.
However, the developer is mostly-known for its Lego Star Wars games. The firs installment in the series hit the shelves in 2005, followed by “Lego Star Wars 2: The Original Trilogy” in September 2006. The latest addition to the list is “Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga”.
Currently, the developer is working on “Lego Batman: The Videogame” and “Lego Indiana Jones.”
