Smith & Tinker is an electronic entertainment company founded in 2007 by Jeremy Bornstein, Lenny Raymond, Kev Ray, and Jordan Weisman. In late 2007 the first three left the company and Weisman recruited Tim Lebel and Joe Lawandus. On October 15, 2007, they announced that they had licensed from Microsoft the rights for Weisman’s previous creations of MechWarrior, Shadowrun, Crimson Skies and other FASA titles and would be announcing their plans for these intellectual properties at a later date.
The first game from Smith & Tinker was Nanovor. Nanovor is an online battle game targeted to 7 - 12 year olds. Nanovor was released to public beta in May 2009.
Smith & Tinker are also responsible, in conjunction with Piranha Games, for the future release of Mechwarrior as announced on June 8/09.
