Publishers


Electric Dreams Software was a video game publisher established in 1985 by ex-managing director of Quicksilva, Rod Cousens and ex Software Manager of Quicksilva, Paul Cooper. The company published video games for the ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64 and Amstrad CPC between 1985 and 1989, becoming one of the top eight UK software houses of that decade.

Proein Soft Line and Ricochet with Electric Dreams Software published Aliens: The Computer Game (1986).

Developers


Software Studios set up in April 1986 and run by John Dean and Dave Cummings. Software Studios also handled Activision's products marketed in countries outside the United States. The concept behind this team was to pool resources and ideas between all Electric Dream projects, but they were also directly responsible for two film tie-in licenses, Aliens: The Computer Game (1986) and Big Trouble in Little China.
