Digital Chocolate, Inc. was a video game developer and publisher headquartered in San Mateo, California. It was founded in 2003 by Trip Hawkins, the founder of video game companies Electronic Arts and The 3DO Company. The company focused on developing games for mobile phones, iOS, and Microsoft Windows, and made some non-entertainment titles. Its marketing motto was Seize the minute.
This developer was officially stopped. It has sold its games to RockYou, and its website was shut down.
Digital Chocolate has operations in San Mateo, Seattle, St. Petersburg, Bangalore, and Mexicali.
In May 2012, Trip Hawkins stepped down as CEO to move to a "consulting and advisory relationship" with the company. The company also announced plans to lay off 180 employees.
Galaxy Life is their most successful title on Facebook to date, ranking at 284th bucket of MAU (Monthly Active Users) as of September 13, 2013.  In 2013 Digital Chocolate's Barcelona studio was sold to Ubisoft with the Galaxy Life IP and the Helsinki studio was closed.
In April 2014, Digital Chocolate's four remaining Facebook games—Army Attack, Crazy Penguin Wars, Millionaire City, and Zombie Lane—were licensed to RockYou, along with the hiring of their developers to continue work on the games.
