Corrosive Software


This English company was started as The Big Red Software Company by Paul Ranson in 1989. They primarily developed conversions, budget games and licensed titles, working closely with Codemasters in their early years. Later their eponymous racing game was successful.

In 1995 Big Red Software was acquired by Eidos and became part of the new Eidos Interactive.

The division was renamed Corrosive Software in about 1997 and was a development unit of Eidos. The division completed the game Assault Corps but it was never released. Eidos closed down Corrosive Software in 1998.
