The seeds of Indie Built were sown way back in 1983, when Bruce Carver (President) and Chris Jones (CFO) started Access Software Inc. Their company grew quickly with the success of such early titles as Beachhead and their first golf game, World Class Leaderboard. In 1989, Access Software began their best-known contributions to computer gaming, with the release of Mean Streets. Although the game was initially intended to be only a flight simulator, its developers added a framing story featuring a futuristic detective named Tex Murphy.

In 1999, Access was acquired by Microsoft and became known as Indie. Indie participated in the launch of Xbox in Holiday 2001 with the critically acclaimed Amped snowboarding title. In October 2004 Indie Built, Inc. became a wholly owned subsidiary of Take Two Interactive Software (TTWO) as part of the 2KGames brand, focusing on sports titles for the next generation of gaming consoles and the PC platform.
