 Adventuresoft Ltd.

Logo Adventure Soft is a UK-based video game developer which was established in 1992 by Mike Woodroffe, then owner of Callisto Computers, one of the very early computer shops. Callisto Computers was, amongst other things, an importer and reseller of Adventure International games. It operates out of Sutton Coldfield. It is best known for the successful Simon the Sorcerer series of games.

With the rise of more powerful systems like the Commodore Amiga and a growing disinterest in text focussed games Adventure Soft began to actively exploit the graphical and multimedia angle of the games. The first 32 bit game Personal Nightmare based on a design by Keith Wadhams featured music, animation and some mouse control coupled with a traditional text based game system. It was followed by two games based around Elvira, Mistress of the Dark: Elvira: Mistress of the Dark, Elvira II: The Jaws of Cerberus and a game named Waxworks, all of which moved away from keyboard command input to mouse driven gaming with animation and music from Jezz Woodroffe (a session musician with Robert Plant, Black Sabbath and other bands). Waxworks and the Elvira games used a modified AberMUD 5 game engine.
