Sirius Software, Inc.

Overview

Sirius Software was founded in 1981 by Jerry Jewell and Terry Bradley. Nasir Gebelli was the first royalty based programmer. Nasir and Jerry created the first graphics editing package for the Apple II computer called, E-Z Draw. The company grew quickly and had sales of over $4 million in just 2 1/2 years. In total Sirius marketed 160 products worldwide for the Apple II, Atari VCS, Atari 400/800, Commodore Vic 20 and 64, PC, Intellivision and other game consoles.

Sirius' leading game titles included Space Eggs, Bandits, Repton, Epoch, Gorgon and many others.

Sirius ceased operations in 1984 largely due to Fox Video Games refusal to pay $14 million in disputed royalty payments.
