OverviewHicom (하이콤) was a South Korean developer and publisher of video games. The company was founded on December 8th, 1988. In their early days they gained prominence by distributing Sega consoles and games in their homeland. They became a third-party developer for Sega of America in 1996 and began working on various titles for the Genesis console. However, all their projects were canceled as the focus shifted towards Sega's then-new Saturn console. They later shifted the focus to PC game development, and worked on Corum games, which became their flagship series.
Hicom filed bankruptcy on June 30th, 1998, but reformed on August 1st the same year. The last game they released was Corum Oejeon (1999). Shortly afterwards the company was taken over by its main investor and became eSofnet.
