Ocean Software Ltd., often referred to simply as Ocean, was a very influential British gaming company. During the late 1980s and early 1990s, they were one of the largest video game companies and published games on nearly every console and computer architecture of the time. Ocean was acquired by Infogrames in 1996 and restructured and renamed to Infogrames UK in 1998.
