Eurocom, formerly known as Eurocom Entertainment Software, was a British video game developer based in Derby, England. It was founed in 1988 by Mat Sneap, Chris Shrigley, Hugh Binns, Tim Rogers and Neil Baldwin. Eurocom was established specifically to develop games for the Nintendo Entertainment System, but went on to expand to several other platforms including handheld game systems and most major video game consoles. The company was once famous for its arcade to console ports, but became better known for working with licensed properties such as Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, Ice Age 2: The Meltdown, the James Bond video game series and Batman Begins.
On 23 November 2012, Eurocom laid off around 75% of their 200 employees; in a statement, company director Hugh Binns said "...Eurocom are undertaking a restructuring which I regret to say has meant we've made the majority of our workforce redundant today...", attributing the move to a "steep decline in demand for console games", adding that the company "...will be focusing mainly on mobile opportunities moving forward." However, on 6 December 2012, the company laid off its remaining staff and ceased trading.
