Punk Development, Inc. was a subsidiary and product development arm of publisher RazorSoft based in Sunnyvale, California. It was founded by Jeff Spangenberg, who later started Iguana Entertainment and Retro Studios. It was incorporated in Oklahoma on June 27, 1990.

On July 31, 1991, Sega Enterprises Ltd. sued RazorSoft and Punk Development for breach of contract; engaging in conspiracy and fraud; unauthorized use of copyrights, trademarks, and logos; and misappropriation of intellectual property. [1] Programmer Kevin Seghetti recalls that the lawsuit might have been over RazorSoft manufacturing its "own cartridges for Stormlord, instead of paying Sega to do it."
