Virgin Games was a video game development studio and publisher founded in 1981.
An extension to the Virgin business Brand. The first games released by Virgin Games were for ZX Spectrum
. Over the course of its existence, the company published and developed games for many platforms and systems, including PC
, Game Boy
, C64, Jaguar
etc. The number of games published, ported and distributed by far exceeds the number of games of own development. Virgin Games, Inc. was renamed Virgin Interactive
in 1991. Virgin Games (by the renamed Virgin Interactive Entertainment) was aquired by Titus
. The brand ceased to be used in 2003 and was renamed to Avalon Entertainment.
After the studio's demise, many of Virgin's former employees went on to work in other successful game studios, including Westwood Studios
, Shiny Entertainment
and Synergistic Software
