"Insurgent Games was founded in 2009 by Micah Lee and Crystal Mayer out of their San Francisco studio apartment," the company's founders explain. "For a couple of years they happily made iPhone and Android games. They quickly realized that unless you're incredibly lucky, it's hard to make enough money developing indie mobile games to pay San Francisco rent. So Micah got a full time job and Crystal moved on to other things."
Lee and Mayer, now working for the Electronic Frontier Foundation and as a freelance web designer, respectively, hope that their GNU General Public Licensed games "will thrive and be reborn as bigger and better things."
