ImaginEngine is a Framingham, Massachusetts-based videogame studio. It was founded in 1994 by Jon Goldman and Mark Loughridge. Since that time, it has gone through two merges: in 2003 with Digital Eclipse Software which resulted in Backbone Entertainment, and in 2005 with The Collective, Inc. and Pipeworks Software to form Foundation 9 Entertainment. Foundation 9 Entertainment is an entertainment multimedia conglomerate which uses its varous studios to appeal to specific market segments. In this setup, ImaginEngine is used to keep a hold on the casual videogame market, though the studio's been trying to expand to the advanced video game market since 2007.
- ImaginEngine also developed the videogame version of Apples to Apples, a card game currently published by Mattel. The card game version of Apples to Apples was referenced in "Game of DeNile" as Gargoyles to Gargoyles.
