Access Software

Access Software was a Salt Lake City, Utah based video game developer founded in 1982 by Bruce Carver and Chris Jones amongst others and was famous for the Tex Murphy game series in the 90s. The company was acquired by Microsoft in 1999, became part of Microsoft Game Studios and was renamed to Salt Lake Games Studio. In 2003 it was renamed again to Indie Games.

In October 2004, Microsoft sold the development studio to Take-Two Interactive and it took on the name Indie Built. They became part of T2's 2K Games/2K Sports brand until its dissolution in 2006.

In 2007, Chris Jones and Aaron Conners founded Big Finish Games, which is staffed primarily by veterans of Access/Indie Built. In 2012, they commenced development on a new Tex Murphy game.
