Yeti Interactive Change Name To TIWAK

Yeti Interactive today announced that it has changed its name to Tiwak(TM). Tiwak was founded in August 2000 by key members of the development team for the award-winning action-platformers Rayman and Rayman 2.

"We had the team choose between various names, and Tiwak was the clear winner! We later found out that Tiwak was the name of a little boy, hero of an Indian legend. It was just cool!", said Yann Le Tensorer, CEO of Tiwak.

21 months after the creation of the company, Tiwak has become a well known game studio, with over 40 employees working on both a major title (a Microsoft first-party action/platform game exclusive to Xbox) and also a high performance console games production toolset. Tiwak has also started to work on other game concepts for consoles, and will present them to publishers at this year's E3.
