OverviewMagnetic Scrolls was a British game developer founded in 1984 by Anita Sinclair, Ken Gordon and Hugh Steers and located in London, England.
They mostly developed text adventure games, until the popularity of that genre began to fade and they were acquired by MicroProse in 1992. They collaborated with MicroProse in the development of The Legacy: Realm of Terror.
In 2017 several former members of the company founded Strand Games with the intention of re-releasing and re-mastering Magnetic Scrolls games on modern devices.
