Ocean of America, Inc. was the American subsidiary of British software company Ocean. It was founded in May 1990 and located in San Jose, California. [1] Around 1992, members of Painting by Numbers, a British developer that had a close relationship with Ocean, were brought in to help set up a development team. After Ocean was bought out by Infogrames in 1996, the team was laid off and development work (namely Mission: Impossible for Nintendo 64 and PC) was moved to France.
