Codemasters: Starting the Fun Since 1986

 

The Southam, Warwickshire, UK based company began as a publisher of action games rooted in the ZX Spectrum. The success of their first series, Dizzy, prompted them to release their software into other platforms such as the Commodore 64, Commodore 16, BBC Micro, Acorn Electron, Amstrad CPC, Atari 8-bit, Commodore Amiga, and the Atari ST. They achieved widespread fame from their long series of simulator games, specifically the sports simulations like the BMX Simulator, Grand_Prix_Simulator and Pro Boxing Simulator. They were also one of the few electronic entertainment software publisher in the 80s that only released low retail price titles.

 

Unlike other interactive software developers and gaming companies from the 80s, the British company remained successful even in the late 1990s to early 2000s thanks to their range of music creation software (Music 2000, MTV Music Generator, etc.) for PlayStation platform and PC. In 2007, the company entered into a game distribution agreement with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The partnership resulted in the release of the massively multiplayer online role-playing game, The Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar. In 2012, the company decided to rebrand and switch their focus on their strengths. Since then, the company only produces driving genre titles and nothing else.
