Overview edit · view history

Zed Two was formed in 1996 by John and Ste Pickford (who originally formed Zippo Games in 1988, and also worked with Nintendo and Rare during the mid-1990s). Originally, Zed Two started up in Ste's house, with no funding at all, but soon boomed into a major development house thanks to the puzzle game, Wetrix. It was located in Manchester, United Kingdom.

In December 2002, Zed Two was acquired by Warthog of UK and no longer existed as an independent company.

In 2005, the Pickfords went on to form a new company, Zee 3 Limited, an online distributor and publisher of digital media.

Trivia +

The name of the company (Zed Two) stands for the second generation of the original company formed by John and Ste Pickford (Zippo Games). The word 'Zed' is spelt this way, so that America would not call them 'Zee Two' (if it were just a Z).
