OverviewZOO Digital was a UK based publisher of budget priced console and PC games, as well DVD games. The company was founded in 2000 as Digital Sales by Barry Hatch, who had previously worked in Sales at Gremlin. The following year the company would be renamed to Digital Worldwide.
On June 2002, Digital Worldwide was acquired by the ZOO Digital Group and was renamed ZOO Digital Publishing. On March 2004 the company acquired UK developer Hothouse Creations.
On April 5th 2006, ZOO Digital Group announced that it was pulling out of the video game market, choosing instead to focus on interactive DVD content. Developer Hothouse was shut down and ZOO Digital Publishing was renamed to ZOO Interactive Video. All of ZOO Digital Group's video game related assets were sold to Barry Hatch for £250,000, and he would immediately re-establish ZOO Digital Publishing as an independent company.
Despite the change in focus, ZOO Interactive Video would be closed on October 2006 following disappointing financial performance. After the closure, ZOO Digital Group's founder Ian Stewart would join Barry Hatch at the newly independent company.
Despite no longer being in business, the now dormant company has been renamed multiple times by ZOO Digital Group.
