Sensory Sweep Studios was an American developer of computer and video games. The studio was located in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Founded in 2003 by Dave Rushton, Sensory Sweep was initially a handheld studio, developing games for the Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, and PSP. Later, Sensory Sweep added console titles to their résumé, releasing games for the PC, Wii, PlayStation 2, and Xbox 360.

Sensory Sweep released many games from notable franchises, including Justice League Heroes, Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005, as well as the up-and-coming Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends: Imagination Invaders, Alvin and the Chipmunks, and Jackass: The Game. Additionally, Sensory Sweep's release of Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting was, at the time of its release, the fastest selling Xbox Live Arcade title to date.[1]


Legal issues

On January 14, 2009, Sensory Sweep and Dave Rushton (the founder and president of Sensory Sweep) were named as co-defendants in a wage claim lawsuit[2][3] filed in Utah District Court by the United States Department of Labor. The filing claims that employees are owed over 2 million dollars in wages in a violation against the Fair Labor Standards Act. The lawsuit is currently unresolved. The Labor Department is also seeking an injunction to prevent Sensory Sweep from shipping or selling any completed product produced by said employees.

On December 15, 2010 the Salt Lake Tribune reported that Rushton pleaded guilty to one third-degree felony count of failing to pay taxes and one second-degree felony count of engaging in a pattern of unlawful activity. He was sentenced to six months in jail for tax fraud and racketeering. Third District Judge Robin Reese also ordered Rushton to pay $516,816 in restitution. He will also be placed on 72 months probation and faces up to 20 years in prison and additional penalties if he violates any of the conditions of his probation. Those conditions include being forbidden from handling money for other people and performing 200 hours of community service.[4]
