Notes Originally established as 8-bit developer Terminal Software in the early 1980s, Binary Design was formed circa 1987 by Andy Hieke and predominantly forged a reputation as a budget games developer for 8- and 16-bit platforms. Following their demise in Jan 1990 due to Virgin's takeover of Mastertronic and the death of the 1.99 budget game, Hieke wasted no time and formed 16-bit development company Creative Materials in Feb 1990 from the ashes of Binary Design.

Notes EDOS was a form of legal electronic software distribution introduced in the UK in 1991. The basic premise was to enable games retailers to reap greater profits by stocking a wider range of games without taking up precious shelf space.

Original master copies of games were supplied to retailers on encrypted CDs, and copied to blank disks or tapes on demand for buyers (like PD) using a custom 386SX PC in-store. Games were available for a wide range of 8- and 16-bit formats [Amiga, Atari ST, PC, Amstrad CPC (tape/disk), Spectrum (tape), C64/128 (tape/disk), MSX], and supplied to customers on generic media in multi-format labelled game boxes.

EDOS closed down its operation in mid-1994 after major UK computer chain retailer John Menzies withdrew its support and the number of independent stores involved had significantly dropped.
