Unique Development Studios (or UDS) was a video and computer game developer founded in 1993 and was based in Norrköping and Gothenburg, Sweden. They wanted to find skilled and motivated programmers and artists to develop some great games for Microsoft Windows and video game consoles. The company declared bankruptcy in 2004 and shut down.

History[edit]

UDS was a video game development company founded in 1993 by Michael Brunnström and Peter Zetterberg. Their first game was Obsession in 1994, a pinball game for the Atari ST (later ported to the Amiga). They also released for the STE a game called SubStation in 1995, a first-person shooter similar to Doom. Since then they became a developer for consoles and PC compatibles.

In 2000, the company purchased King of the Jungle, based out of London, which developed games such as Grooverider: Slot Car Thunder and Invasion from Beyond.

In 2004, the company shut down, most likely due to a number of unsuccessful games that were released.
