Attention to Detail Ltd (ATD) was a British video game developer based in Hatton, England.


Attention to Detail was founded in September 1988 by University of Birmingham graduates Chris Gibbs, Fred Gill, Martin Green, Jon Steele and Jim Torjussen.[1] In January 1997, the company was acquired by Geoff Brown, who established Geoff Brown Holdings (later Kaboom Studios) to manage the ownership.[2] Amid financial struggles at Kaboom Studios, Attention to Detail went into liquidation on 28 August 2003, laying off all 50 staff members.[3] The closure was partially caused by the company being unable to secure a publishing deal for their in-development title, Ion Runner, which was effectively cancelled.[4]
