DigiNin (also known as DigiPen Computer Graphics) is a nickname for the 1990s collaboration between Nintendo and the United States Redmond, Washington university DigiPen Institute of Technology. Since Nintendo Software Technology was also founded in Redmond, Washington; it is possible the company spun off from DigiNin.
Nintendo provided hardware and development tools, guidance and technical expertise to the university, and students created at least 30 small non-commercial games, including "Dungeon Madness," "Star Fighter" and "Fate of the Heroes." These games remained at DigiPen and in the student's portfolios and were not released elsewhere.
- Dungeon Madness
- Star Fighter
- Fate of the Heroes
- Metal Zero
- Disposable Heroes
In addition, it is possible DigiNin were involved in the Nintendo Gateway System (LodgeNet) games Noughts & Crosses (Tic Tac Toe) and Hangman because of the involvement of staff (Claude Comair, Raymond Yan, Mark Trono), later known for their work on various Nintendo Software Technology projects.
