This article is about something in reality outside of the world of Mech Mice.
Hyper Hippo Productions is a MMORPG development company, the major producer of Mech Mice Tactics, Mech Mice Academy and Leviathans Online. The company was founded by Lance Priebe in August of 2012. In November 2012, Catalyst Game Labs announced the partnership with Hyper Hippo Productions to create Leviathans Online. Mech Mice was initially developed by Rocketsnail Games in 2010 but has since merged to Hyper Hippo Productions, which both share the same founder Lance Priebe and some of the employees there. They have 14 team members. Rocketsnail Games is now Lance's personal company.
