Ed founded Edward Grabowski Communications October 1994 (many believe that this is the worst company name in the business). Between 1994 and 2000 the company has developed and shipped five original PC titles. That's not including German, Italian, Spanish, French and Japanese versions of the games, and budget releases that see the games still selling some five years after first publication. Ed is now focused on creating original PC games for sale via PlaceforGames.
