Spyro the Dragon is an American action/platform game series starring the video game character Spyro, which was originally published by Sony Computer Entertainment and developed by Insomniac Games for the PlayStation.
The first game was a huge success and after three games on the original PlayStation, Insomniac Games went on to create the Ratchet & Clank series while Spyro was left in the hands of Universal Interactive Studios (now as Vivendi Universal Games). The rights of this franchise are now owned by Activision.
The series now has thirteen games in total with many sequels and spin-off games following on later consoles.
The Spyro series has sold more than 20 million units worldwide.
