Unique Development Studios AB (formerly Unique Development Sweden HB) was a Swedish video game developer based in Norrköping. Founded in September 1993 by Michael Brunnström, Peter Zetterberg and Carl Lundqvist, the company incorporated under the name Unique Development Sweden in May 1994, and renamed Unique Development Studios in June 1997. Between 1998 and 2000, Unique Development Studios opened a second office in Gothenburg, acquired London-based developer King of the Jungle, and established publishing subsidiaries GlobalFun and AddGames. The company shut down in 2004, and development of The Kore Gang was shifted to SnapDragon Games, until it also dissolved and the game was handed to Zoink, a studio led by former Unique Development Studios game designer Klaus Lyngeled.
