Binary Design Ltd
Year of death
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.
Label that produced conversions of Mastertronic's Arcadia coin-ops, which were based on the A500. Notably, Arcadia's Super Select System, a multiplay coin-op, came in two formats, Sports Simulation & Arcade Action, and contained 5 games each. Reportedly there was a 10 game machine that combined the two formats also. Arcadia also released at least 3 standalone coin-ops (Aaargh!, Roadwars, Rockford).
