Acclaim Entertainment was an American video game developer and publisher based in Glen Cove, New York. It was founded in 1987 by Greg Fischbach. Acclaim developed, published, marketed and distributed interactive entertainment software for a variety of hardware platforms, including Mega Drive, SEGA Saturn, Dreamcast, and Game Gear, Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo 64, Nintendo GameCube, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, and Game Boy Advance, PlayStation and PlayStation 2, Xbox, and, to a lesser extent, personal computer systems and arcade games. It also released video games for the SEGA Master System in Europe.
After Acclaim Entertainment's 2004 demise, the Acclaim brand and logotype were purchased by the unrelated company Acclaim Games (defunct from August 26, 2010). Canadian video game publisher Throwback Entertainment acquired more than 150 titles from Acclaim's video game library. In July 2010, We Go Interactive Co., Ltd., based in Seoul, Korea, purchased all IP related with Re-Volt, RC Revenge Pro, RC De GO from Throwback Entertainment.
