|7th Level, Inc.|
|Computer and video game industry|
7th Level was a video games development company based in Dallas, Texas and founded in 1993. The company was most famous for developing the three Monty Python games (with the aid of Python member Terry Gilliam), G-Nome (1997) — a MechWarrior-style game, for publishing Helicops (1997) — an anime-inspired arcade-style aerial combat game, and for Tracer — a game of hacking distributed computer systems for cash using a virtual avatar in the design of Neuromancer, Shadowrun, or Snowcrash styled virtual worlds.
7th Level announced their intention to merge with Pulse Entertainment on November 17, 1997 to create P7 Solutions — an integrated solutions company. The distribution rights for the three Monty Python games were acquired by Panasonic Interactive Media the next day, ending 7th Level's involvement with game development and publishing. The announced merger between 7th Level and Pulse Entertainment was later canceled in April of the following year.
