Distinctive Software Inc. (D.S.I.)
Established in Vancouver, Canada in 1982 by Don Mattrick, an 18 year-old programmer who set out to ''build a strong team of software engineers, graphic artists and musicians''. Don noticed that everybody at the time was trying to replicate coin-ops, but decided instead to write games that utilised the capabilities of the computer. By 1990, DSI had created over 60 games and had over 70 people working for it, producing games on the Amiga, Atari ST, C64, PC, Macintosh, Apple II GS, Nintendo NES and Gameboy consoles.

Established in 1983. In January 1987, the company was purchased from its parent corporation, SFN Companies, by Mindscape Chairman John Purcell and Mindscape President and CEO Roger Buoy. In 1986/87, Mindscape acquired the products of software companies Scarborough Systems, Learning Well, and CBS Interactive Learning. The acquisitions made Mindscape an even bigger player in both the education and entertainment fields.
