Silicon Dreams Studios Ltd. was a British software house established in 1994 in Banbury, Oxfordshire, who specialized in sports games, distributed in most part by Eidos Interactive.

Their first major title was the 32-bit/PC edition of the official video game of the 1996 Summer Olympic Games, Olympic Games: Atlanta 1996 and Olympic Soccer, still released with U.S. Gold. Under Eidos, they followed with two football series, World League Soccer and the three titles released in the Champions League series while in Eidos' possession, and finally with UEFA Dream Soccer, Worldwide Soccer 2000 and Worldwide Soccer: Euro Edition for the Dreamcast.. Their last title was Freestyle Street Soccer, which failed to convince in both press and market.

While mostly known for their football games, Silicon Dreams also developed other games, including Chill, Dogs of War and several Lego Group licensed titles, such as Lego Soccer Mania and Lego Island 2.

Silicon Dreams officially closed its doors in September 2003.[3]
