ZOOM Inc. (Japanese: 株式会社ズーム Hepburn: Kabushiki gaisha Zūmu?) is a Japanese video game company based in Sapporo, Japan.[1]

History[edit]

The company started by producing a few titles for the Sharp X68000 system, and then for other console systems. In April 1993, Zoom established a joint venture with Imagineer. However, Imagineer-Zoom was disbanded in January 1995 because of poor performance. Dolucky is the most notable game series published by Imagineer. They developed some fighting games such as Zero Divide and Rurouni Kenshin: Ishin Gekitōhen.

The company's mascot is a cat named NECO, whose first appearance was on the Genocide game intro and manual. In the Dolucky video game series, the mascot appears as the main character. It also appears in the Zero Divide titles.
