Holistic Design, Inc. is an American game company that was founded in the early 1990s. Only one of the original partners is still with the company, Ken Lightner, though the other current partners bring a broad array of game design skills to the firm, most notably Bill Bridges, Andrew Greenberg and Chris Wiese.
The company has developed many computer games in its history, including Battles of Destiny, Hammer of the Gods, Final Liberation, Machiavelli the Prince, Merchant Prince II, Emperor of the Fading Suns, and Mall Tycoon. HDI also has a number of miniatures games in its inventory, including Noble Armada, Carnage and Combat Zone. Their most famous product is perhaps its role-playing game Fading Suns, but they also have a number of other RPGs to their credit, such as Rapture: The Second Coming, and their Real-Life Roleplaying series covering Afghanistan, Columbia, Somalia and the FBI.
