Luxoflux is an American video game developer. It was founded by Peter Morawiec and Adrian Stephens in January, 1997, and is based in Santa Monica, California. Luxoflux had a relatively small team size for its first few titles. The two founders plus Jeremy Engelman, David Goodrich and Edvard Toth created Luxoflux’s first title Vigilante 8. The company was acquired by Activision (which publishes its games) in October 2002. Luxoflux was originally going to be called "Alpha Channel" but it was later discovered that this title was already in use.
