Foley Hi-Tech (originally Foley Hi-Tech Systems) was founded in 1983 by David R. Foley while he was a freshman at Boston's Northeastern University. After he moved to San Francisco in 1990, he started working on Sega Genesis games and was part of the team behind such titles as Spider-Man and Chakan. That team eventually split up, and Foley began taking on projects through his own company. [1]

Foley Hi-Tech shut down in 1996. [2]
