About Us…

Phoenix Ware is a subsidiary of Bitmap Soft, imagine Psygnosis and Psyclapse, ok we are not anywhere in that league but you get the point.

The aim of Phoenix Ware is to release compilations, budget titles,and now premium titles too and there will be other wonderful game-related things we have not even imagined yet.

The style and feel of this label will be very much with an 80’s vibe, the games will all come with a templated design like those from The Hit Squad publisher BITD.

Phoenix Ware is also seeking to make additional distribution deals with other software publishers as we look to extend our online shop’s footprint. By partnering with fellow publishers, if your interested in developing a partnership with us please get in touch.

Are you developing a retro game or developed one already? We’d love to hear from you and potentially work on a physical release for your game!

We know a physical release for any game can seem like a daunting task, especially for these older consoles. This is why we started Phoenix Ware: to help make physical releases a reality for more developers. We knew there were always two things holding most people back: risk and effort. We assume both of these burdens, so you can just focus on development.

Why work with us?

We can finance your entire run. If your game doesn’t sell well, you are not at any risk. We can do everything, from design and packaging to putting a complete and final product in your hands.  Physical products require shipping, which can come with a lot of logistical overhead. We market, sell, and ship your game directly to customers through our site, so you don’t need to worry about it!  We offer quality after-sales service and customer support, all handled in-house.  If this sounds interesting, please don’t wait longer and get in touch with us. We’d love to discuss how we can help your project reach its fullest potential!

We currently support the VIC20, CPC 464, C64, ZX Spectrum 48k/128k, Commodore Amiga and Sega Megadrive systems. All sales are split after costs between the developer and ourselves, we are not for profit and will be re-investing back into the software house to increase our output and hopefully be able to publish games for other systems. If you’ve written a game, hold the rights to a classic game that you 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, as we will take on all the risk plus you keep hold of the rights to the game.
