Overview

Founded by Mike Woodroffe and operating out of Birmingham, UK, Adventuresoft was initially distributing games produced by the North American company Adventure International, converting them to European personal computers. Later, they started developing their own adventure games. By the end of the 1980's they began to use the Horror Soft brand, and eventually moved to Sutton Coldfield, where they were re-branded as Adventure Soft Publishing in 1992.
