CRONOSOFT was established in 2002/2003 as a software house for publishing new and unreleased games for retro computers and consoles. Anyone who has written a new game, and would like to see it published, is invited to send it to us, and if we like it, we may market it for you.
CRONOSOFT is a non-profit making software company. Any money that we make from sales is re-invested into the software house (we're not talking huge amounts of money here...!). No-one takes a 'wage' or anything like that, and I certainly don't nip off to Skegness with the loot.
We have had lots of publicity in the past, and have featured regularly in mainstream printed computer and gaming magazines such as RETRO GAMER , GamesTM , Micro Mart gaining very respectable reviews for all of our releases. We have also been mentioned on the BBC website, The Guardian, The i and The Independent newspapers.
Currently we support the Sinclair ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, Commodore 16/+4, ZX81, ZX80, Amstrad CPC, Dragon 32 and Vic 20 machines.
We are eager to provide new software for all formats, including the ZX80, ZX81, Dragon 32, Vic, Tandy Color, Texas TI99, Sord M5, Oric-1/Atmos, Mattel Aquarius, Atari 8-bit, Amiga, Atari ST, as well as consoles such as the CD32, Mega CD, Atari 2600, Original and Color Gameboy, and others if funds allow in the future.
Don’t be too put off by the fact that we're doing the duplication and production in a D.I.Y. Way - I think you’ll be surprised at how good the final product looks. We use professional outsourced printing and the end results look professional and on a par with what you'd experience back in the day.
If you’ve written a game, hold the rights to a classic game that you have created back in the day, or perhaps you’re thinking of writing one, then maybe we can help you out. After all - you’ve got nothing to lose.
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.
Apologies, but due to several lost items of international mail, I can no longer offer a cheaper untracked overseas service for packages with more than 1 cassette. I'm sorry for this, but as a non-profit making software house, any losses come directly out of our funds.
