Skill Screen Games was formed by Tom Banting, Peter Banting, and J. Maitland Banting. They produced one game, "Extra Terrestrials" which has been hidden away for almost 30 years before being "discovered" in 2011.

The company worked alongside Telcom Research Ltd. (which Tom was president of). Telcom manufactured time code generators and readers for video tape manipulation in the broadcast industry, automatic telephone dialers, etc.

Packaging design was done by J. Maitland Banting.

The company was formed just prior to the game market crash of 1983 and discontinued production shortly after it began.
