Interplay is an American video game publisher founded by Brian Fargo in 1983 and based in California, responsible for developing and publishing popular video game series such as Earthworm Jim, Descent, Fallout and FreeSpace. Following the dissapointing sales of some of its bigger release, it was purchased by Titus Software in 2001. However, fund issues caused by Titus' overexpension lead to Interplay coming close to bankrupticity and changing its focus to publishing its back catalogue on download services such as the Virtual Console.

Interplay developed Mario Teaches Typing and its sequel under license from Nintendo.
