Founded in 2003 by Dave Rushton, Sensory Sweep was initially a handheld studio, developing games for the Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, and PSP. Later, Sensory Sweep added console titles to their résumé, releasing games for the PC, Wii, PlayStation 2, and Xbox 360.

Litigation[edit | edit source]

On January 14, 2009, Sensory Sweep and Dave Rushton (the founder and president of Sensory Sweep) were named as co-defendants in a wage claim lawsuit[2][3] filed in Utah District Court by the United States Department of Labor. The filing claims that employees are owed over 2 million dollars in wages in a violation against the Fair Labor Standards Act. The lawsuit is currently unresolved. The Labor Department is also seeking an injunction to prevent Sensory Sweep from shipping or selling any completed product produced by said employees.
