The folks from 3D Realms made the game (rather they failed to make the game), 3D Realms went bust, Gearbox bought the rights and got the folks from 3D Realms, now calling themselves Triptych Games, back together so they could finish what they started. Then Piranha Games was hired to do the console ports and add multiplayer to the game. All Gearbox did was fund this effort, and yeah, the Psycho was added in after Gearbox started funding the project and Gearbox had a hand in it as far as telling them "you have this amount of time to make your game that you'll never finish be presentable enough for release"... and that's it.
