Quicksilva Ltd.

Overview

Quicksilva was founded by Nick Lambert in 1981. It became one of the UK industry's first big companies, releasing at least 50 Spectrum games and 20 Commodore 64 titles, including games from Jeff Minter and titles from Spain's Indescomp team such as Bugaboo (The Flea) and Fred. They released games from at least 1982 to 1987.

In 1984 Quicksilva was bought by The Argus Press Group, itself a division of British Electric Traction, for a seven-figure sum. The deal made Nick Lambert and John Hollis, who between them owned 80% of the company's shares, millionaires. Rod Cousens, then Managing Director of Quicksilva stayed on after the sale until the new owners moved the headquarters from Southampton to London.
