Established in Portsmouth, UK in 1989 by Adrian Cummings, Mutation Software developed for the Amiga, Atari ST, PC & desktop/handheld consoles, but were late bloomers in the publication stakes and began publishing Amiga games in 1996 via mail order following the demise of both Commodore and its immediate successor Escom. Although Amiga games were discontinued in 1998, Mutation continued to develop/publish for the PC & consoles until 2004 and, in the process, expanded their software channels to other European countries while offering digital downloads on top of the mail order option via their company website.
Adrian now heads a predominantly mobile platform game development company called Mobile Amusements / Software Amusements (formerly Binary Design). However, most recently, in January 2020 he announced exciting plans to relaunch the Mutation Software label with the initial aim of publishing - starting March 2020 - a range of autographed, limited edition remastered back-catalogue games for Amiga collectors on floppy disk in brand new boxes. Moreover, a new game - WIZ: QUEST FOR THE MAGIC LANTERN - is in the early stages of development and upon completion will be available for retail purchase in the form of a physical boxed version and digital download.
