ACE Team was created by three brothers: Andres Bordeu, Carlos Bordeu, and Edmundo Bordeu. The name of the team is derived from their initials.
Their first creation was Batman DOOM in 1999, using DeHackEd, followed in 2000 by Edmundo's ZDoomGL project ZanZan. Afterwards, they created a modification for Quake 3 Arena, The Dark Conjunction, in 2002.
Since then, they have turned ACE Team into a legal entity and have become independent game developers. Their first game, Zeno Clash, was released in 2009, and a sequel, Zeno Clash II, was released in 2013.
