Eldritch the Cat was formed in April 1988 by coders Marc Dawson and Steve Wetherill. [Source: PROJECTYLE game manual]
According to coder Marc Dawson, the origin of the dev team name Eldritch the Cat ''has a rather dubious origin — there was a guitarist called Andrew Eldritch who played with a group called Sisters of Mercy.'' [Source: ASTAROTH game manual, p1]
Disbanded in 1992, the last game Eldritch the Cat were developing - FLOPS (Futile League of Pathetic Superheroes) - remained unfinished.
