David Perry, a veteran game developer, was developing for Probe Software in London on the Terminator movie video game, the game was to be published by Virgin Games in Irvine, CA. Perry agreed to complete the work in the United States and so moved over in 1991. While in the states he developed McDonald's Global Gladiators (Sega's Game of the Year), 7-Up's Cool Spot, early development work on Disney's Jungle Book and programmed Disney's Aladdin. Aladdin became a number 1 hit around the world.
At this time Perry got a US Green Card and decided to form Shiny Entertainment Inc. To fund it, he signed a three game distribution deal with Playmates Interactive Entertainment, the three games became Earthworm Jim, Earthworm Jim 2 and MDK. All three games were well reviewed, won awards and were highly profitable.
The first Shiny release was Earthworm Jim, which won the Sega Game of the Year award and put Shiny front-row center as a developer to be watched. A TV show deal was signed with Universal Cartoon Studios, a TV output deal was signed with the Warner Kids Network, Playmates Toys made a complete action figure toy line, a home video collection was made by MCA, Carl's Jr. made a kids meal, Del Taco made a kids meal, Marvel Comics made the official comic books, Fruit of the Loom made clothing and bed coverings, there were even lunch-box, strategy guide, sticker deals etc.
