Razorworks was a video game developer based in Oxfordshire, United Kingdom. Razorworks was founded in August 1996 and was owned by the video game publisher Empire Interactive. The Razorworks studio was closed in July 2008 due to Empire Interactive's poor financial situation (Empire Interactive subsequently went into administration in May 2009).
During its 12 year lifetime the team grew from 4 to 34 people and produced a total of 14 titles for PC and games consoles.
Razorworks initially developed combat flight simulators before moving onto developing car racing games. Razorworks developed a number of titles for Empire Interactive's Ford Racing series including Ford Racing Full Blown, a coin-op video game developed for Sega Amusements of Europe. Razorworks also developed arcade machine emulation technology used to produce the Taito Legends titles and Double Dragon for Xbox Live Arcade. Razorworks' final project was a remake of Empire Interactive's classic puzzle game Pipe Mania.
