Runic Games is a computer game company formed by Travis Baldree (creator of Fate), Max Schaefer and Erich Schaefer (co-founders of Blizzard North), and the Flagship Studios Seattle team responsible for Mythos. Following the dissolution of Flagship Studios in 2008, all 14 members of the Seattle team signed onto Runic Games, and the company is currently developing an action role-playing game similar to their previous project Mythos.
Following the original announcement of their founding no change was seen on the official website until December of 2008. Along with a holiday message was a list of the current staff members, which had grown in number compared to the original Flagship team. One notable addition to the staff was Matt Uelmen, composer for the Blizzard Entertainment's Diablo series.
