Tantalus Media (formerly Tantalus Interactive) is an Australian video game developer based in Melbourne, Australia, founded in 1994 by former Beam Software programmers Trevor Nuridin and Andrew Bailey. The company changed its name to Tantalus Media in 2007 following investment from private equity company Netus.[1]

Tantalus Media are best known for licenced platform conversions and have created over 30 games for the Xbox, Sega Saturn, Dreamcast, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo GameCube, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo 64, PlayStation, PlayStation 2, and PC. Currently they are developing for the Nintendo DS, Wii, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable.

In addition to licenced video games the developer released two original IP titles, Trickstar and Black Market Bowling, and has an as yet unnamed original IP title in development for the Wii and PlayStation 3.[2]

The developer’s best performing title was the 2007 girl’s horse riding simulator Pony Friends for the Nintendo DS which sold more than 1 million copies, making Pony Friends the largest-selling single-format game developed in Australia.[3]
