About the Game

Brandon “Ryze” Beck and Marc “Tryndamere” Merrill, who started Riot Games, were roommates at the University of Southern California and studied business together. Beck and Merrill thought that video game makers switched their attention too often from one game to the next. They pointed to Defense of the Ancients as proof that games could be supported and made money from for a long time. They were also influenced by Asian video game makers who gave away their games for free but charged for extra features.

Beck and Merrill asked family and angel partners for money to start their business. They got US$1.5 million from these sources. Riot Games was started in Santa Monica, California, in September 2006. Steve “Guinsoo” Feak was the first person Riot Games hired. He was one of the first people to work on DotA Allstars, which is believed to be the first MOBA game.
