Spinnaker Software Corporation primarily created and marketed educational games and applications during the
1980s; branched out into purely entertainment titles toward
the end of the company's lifespan.
In February 1994 the company merged with WordStar International and SoftKey Software Products, Inc. to form the new company SoftKey International.
Spinnaker's game Star Tribes: Myth of the DragonLord has been advertised in early 1990, but was never released (it had a full-page advertisement in Computer Gaming World #69, p.17). The game was described as a "futuristic role-playing adventure of epic proportions" featuring "dazzling clay animation characters" and "incredible graphics".
