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

History[edit]

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]
