Welcome to THE CRONOSOFT SHOP
Welcome to Cronosoft ... Specialists in brand new software on cassette for 8-bit computers since 2002. We have probably the largest back catalogue in Europe of new games for old systems in our portfolio, and we're a not-for-profit software label. Nobody at Cronosoft takes any payment or wages, and everything is done solely for the love of old machines. You can buy brand new software on cassette for your Spectrum, Commodore 64, Vic 20, ZX80, ZX81, Amstrad CPC, Commodore 16/+4, Mattel Aquarius and Dragon 32/Coco from us, and in doing so, you're helping to keep these machines alive.
We have been featured regularly in RETRO GAMER magazine, with a 6 page special in issue 166, as well as oftenmentioned on the BBC, and in THE GUARDIAN and INDEPENDENT newspapers. We also feature in Andy Remic's film MEMOIRS OF A SPECTRUM ADDICT, and it's forthcoming sequel SPECTRUM ADDICT: LOAD "FILM 2"
WE WANT TO PUBLISH YOUR GAMES !
Have you written a new game? We would like to see it. Maybe you wrote a great game back in the day, and would like to see it published again? We'd love to do that for you if we can.
2021: COVID-19 & BREXIT - IMPORTANT ANNOUCEMENT FOR INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
Cronosoft is open for business as usual, but unfortunately, due to customs and other delays relating to Brexit, as well as delays caused by backlogs relating to COVID-19, mails is taking much longer than usual, particularly international mail. For example, EU mail is taking around 3-4 weeks, rather than the 3-7 days it would originally have taken. I'm sorry about this, but the situation is beyond our control, so please allow lots of extra time for orders to arrive. We recommend that overseas European buyers limited orders to 1 or 2 cassettes at a time to reduce the risk of unforseen customs charges.
Newly released games, and restocks of older titles have now had a price increase to £6.00 - Reluctantly, I've had to do this as the *very* few suppliers of blank tapes have had quite a substantial price increase over the past few years. When we started back in 2002, we could obtain inexpensive tapes from suppliers clearing out old stocks. However, whilst there is a resurgence in interest in cassettes, there number of suppliers seems to have dwindled, thus vastly increasing the price from the companies that still stock them. I hope you agree that £6.00 is still a decent price, and probably what you might have paid back in 1983.
