Toys For Bob are a small video game developer founded in 1989 by Paul Reiche III and Fred Ford.

They are the developers of The Unholy War (Game).


Star Control and its sequel Star Control II: The Ur-Quan Masters were their first games. After these they went on to create a number of games for Crystal Dynamics, including the hectic combination of action and strategy, The Horde, Pandemonium! and The Unholy War (as well as Little Witching Mischiefs in Japan for Bandai). This relationship with Crystal Dynamics ended in 2002, and the company was bought by Activision on May 3, 2005. It is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Vivendi. The employees and management team have all signed long-term contracts with Activision, which is owned by Vivendi, and Toys For Bob will remain in place in Novato, California. [1]

After completing work on Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam for Nintendo's Wii console they revealed that they were currently working on a reinvention to one of the licenses in the Vivendi group [2], they notably said that it was not Star Control or Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure.[3]

In 2011 it was revealed that ToysForBob had in fact solely been working on the now hugely successful Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure. The game not only received glowing reception, but was the third most profitable game in NA & EU by the first quarter of 2012 [4] and the sales of the toys were two to three times higher than Activision had originally expected [5].
