Codex Gamicus

Imagineering, based in Glen Rock, New Jersey, was the in-house studio of Absolute Entertainment. Many notable video games developed for Absolute include A Boy and his Blob, Battle Tank, Super Battletank and The Rescue of Princess Blobette. They are also best known for their video games developed for third-party publishers, such as Acclaim Entertainment, Hi Tech Expressions and T*HQ.

In every game Imagineering had produced for outside publishers, the following message always appears in the title screen and in the instruction booklet: "Developed by Imagineering Inc., Glen Rock N.J.". This blatant advertising practice of displaying their hometown in their games is considered a very rare practice among game developers and is probably why this town become famous among video gamers. However, they were not credited in Absolute's video games.

Imagineering was in existence from 1986 to 1995. The last games developed by Imagineering were Home Improvement and Penn & Teller's Smoke and Mirrors.
