Mindscape International Ltd.

Overview

Mindscape International Ltd. was the major European publishing and distribution arm of Mindscape, Inc. beginning in about 1986. Located in West Sussex, England, some games were also developed by this division. Its sister company was Mindscape International GmbH.

Mindscape International Ltd. stayed intact during the 1994 Pearson plc acquisition of Mindscape as evidenced by its company name and address appearing on game covers from 1994 all the way through 1997. However, the "International" part of the logo and name was discontinued, and by 1998 (when all of Mindscape was acquired by The Learning Company), this branch was grouped under the TLC label Mindscape Entertainment.

Mindscape (UK) Ltd is the name of the current United Kingdom branch. It is unknown whether the newer company and this one are connected.
