Cryo Interactive / Cryo Interactive Entertainment
Year of death
Formerly known as Exxos and developed for ERE (Infogrames) in the late 1980s. In 1990 they became Cryo and in 1992 an official company, Cryo Interactive Entertainment, was formed by Philippe Ulrich, Remi Herbulot and Jean-Martial Lefranc. They quickly became a very successful developer for other companies like Virgin and Mindscape before turning publisher in 1996. After suspending its shares in June 2002, Cryo was eventually declared bankrupt and all their games reverted to one of their surviving labels, DreamCatcher Interactive.
Established in 1983. In January 1987, the company was purchased from its parent corporation, SFN Companies, by Mindscape Chairman John Purcell and Mindscape President and CEO Roger Buoy. In 1986/87, Mindscape acquired the products of software companies Scarborough Systems, Learning Well, and CBS Interactive Learning. The acquisitions made Mindscape an even bigger player in both the education and entertainment fields.
