Once one of Europe's biggest videogame developers and publishers, Ocean have changed owners, and names three times. After being bought by Infogrames in the mid-nineties their name was changed to Infogrames UK, then Atari UK, and most recently Atari, Inc.

To people playing games in the 16-bit era they were known for their big catalogue of licensed games. They seem to have had connections with Taito during the home computer era.

Selected Works

'Ocean Loader'

Commonly called the 'Ocean Loader', but accurately referred to as 'Freeload', it is what is known as a fastloader: used to counter the slow load times of old home computers. Freeload became an iconic Ocean signiature, sometimes featuring animation, music, and even games.
