Insomniac Games, makers of game titles like Ratchet & Clank and Spyro the Dragon, has become the first major American company in our sector—animation/vfx/games—to publicly condemn a policy by the new American president.
The statement was delivered in the form of a Youtube video with the company’s founder and president, Ted Price, surrounded by dozens of his employees. (The company employs around 190 people.)
“We, at Insomniac Games, stand united in strongly opposing President Trump’s immigration ban,” Price said in the statement. “There’s no question that these orders will harm us as a company and many of our team members. So we ask, ‘Is this the American way? Is discriminating based on religious faith or national origin American?’ Absolutely not. This is a deplorable, discriminatory act that we and many others across the nation believe is patently unconstitutional.”
