Insomniac Games

Ted Price is the President and CEO of Insomniac Games, Inc. - an independent game developer based in Burbank, California which he founded in 1994. The company has since grown to over 150 people. Insomniac's first game, Disruptor, released for the PlayStation in 1996, was a critical success winning several industry awards for Best First Person Shooter. But it wasn't until the release of Insomniac's second game, Spyro the Dragon in 1998 that Insomniac garnered worldwide attention.

Insomniac continued the Spyro series with two more installments on the Playstation. Insomniac then created Ratchet and Clank for the PS2 in 2002. The series has grown to include two sequels in 2003 and 2004. The three titles have garnered over 15 genre awards, 8 Game of the Year awards, and numerous technical achievement awards. To date, Insomniac has sold over 19 million copies of its seven games.

Price's responsibilities at Insomniac include directing the company's day-to-day business as well as overseeing its projects and contributing to their design. Price is also the Chairman of the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences. He holds a degree in English from Princeton University.
