Dongguan Dewei Electronic Co., Ltd., known by the trading name ZOGA, was a Chinese unlicensed Sega Mega Drive clone console developer and manufacturer.

ZOGA's name and logo take significant inspiration from those of iconic Japanese video game company Sega.

Company

ZOGA's offices and manufacturing facilities.

ZOGA specialized in home electronics like DVD players, and additionally produced clone consoles of other systems like the Nintendo Family Computer. The company manufactured products with their own branding, but were also responsible for manufacturing products for other clients, such as the Simba's Mega Drive V and Mega Drive Extreme, and even offered buyers international shipping.

Sometime in 2021, ZOGA's website went offline.
