MicroDeal Ltd.

Overview

MicroDeal was one of the UK's earliest games publishers, starting out by supporting the UK's small Tandy user base, going on to become the main driving force in the Dragon 32 market (as the system shared the same processor and similar graphics circuitry, porting games from one to the other was relatively simple). It also supported Atari and Commodore platforms, and even the BBC. (The occasional PC release was, more often than not, a port of another platform's game.)
