Cross Products was a British company, based in Leeds, specialized in creating and marketing Cross Platform Development Tools, founded in 1989 by Ian Oliver and Andy Craven (Andrew Stuart Craven), a collaborative venture between Realtime Games Software and Vektor Grafix, two of the UK’s leading computer game companies of the time.
In June 1994 the company was acquired by Sega as part of their ongoing development tools strategy. In 2001 the entire share capital of Cross Products was acquired from Sega by Imagination Technologies Group plc for a total of £4.2 million.
