Codemasters
Codemasters   #156


Games developed: 20
Games published: 16
Period: 1991 - 2004

Codemasters were setup in the mid 80's by 2 C64 programmers, Richard & David Darling. Having previously written their own games which were distributed by Mastertronic, they decided to setup on their own. Codemasters specialised in action/adventure games that you move a character around with keys, press a key to get an item and another to drop one. The games were mostly released for Spectrum on tapes. They rapidly became one of the largest budget houses, and were essentially left to run the show when Mastertronic were swallowed up by Virgin.

In 1999 Codemasters bought Yosemite Entertainment (originally the development portion of Sierra On-Line), after Sierra was acquired by Havas and started divesting its various development outfits.
