Eurocom was a British video game developer founded in October 1988 to specifically develop games for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Since then, Eurocom expanded to several other platforms including handheld game systems and most major video game consoles. The company was once famous for its arcade to console ports, but is now better known for working with licensed properties such as Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, Ice Age 2: The Meltdown, the James Bond 007 series, and Batman Begins.

Eurocom was the development studio that pitched the game to THQ and developed Sphinx with the help of the concept artists, animators and artists from Anibyte. A partnership that started with 40 Winks; where the Spanish studio pioneered both concepts as feature films.

On 23 November 2012, Eurocom laid off around 75% of their 200 employees. On 6 December 2012, the company laid off its remaining staff and ceased operations. Most of the remaining staff regrouped as Mobile Gaming Studios Ltd. (also known as EightPixelsSquare) and kept working at the Eurocom House[1] in Derby, developing iOS and Android games. THQ Nordic would buy the Sphinx franchise rights and assets from them in late 2016.[2]
