This company was originally founded by Thomas Kelliher as a media business. The capital that was generated then helped the company move on to more interesting things. Today, the company is infamous for its failed experiments.


Identify the company. (Bonus for getting the clue in the title ;) )

Cracked by: udupendra , teju , vaibhav008 , shyam , Vinay , Lord Jim , varun , shivathilak , Vinod P.V , Mahesh , Shakeel , Vinod P.V , sidsen , jayanth , bobo , A Nony Mouse , prasanth , Shiva , Abhishek , Madan , Tathagata Chatterjee and BiGFoot (and yaksha and Keerthi Kiran M and Dibyo).

Answer:The infamous Union Aerospace Corporation, from the Doom series. UAC created all the mischief with teleporting demons from hell and whatnot. See UAC’s official website for more details.

The famous Doom godmode cheat IDDQD is a reference to ID Delta-Q-Delta. DQD was a fictional fraternity of Doom programmers, with the Q meaning that they quit at least one course.

Lord Jim: I’m quite impressed that you took the time to un-doctor my blurring… The geek force is strong with you…

    UAC from Doom.

    You missed out on a good pun -> you should have said “Id the company”

  2. teju

    The company name is Union Media or now called Union Aerospace Corporation.

    Maybe Q refers to Quake, which was found by ID Software. UAC is a company in the game DOOM by ID Software.

  6. The company is the fictional Union Aerospace Corporation in Doom(the logo has not been blurred properly…any photo editor worth its name can extract the original text).

    Not a great fan of Doom, so could not get the clue in the title….something to do with Doom trivia perhaps.

    Union Aerospace Corporation (UAC).

    About the clue… umm…

    The UAC has/had filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy. When a company is involved in bankruptcy proceedings (in the US), the letter “Q” is added to the end of the company’s stock ticker symbol.
