Some links to information about the Company and the Products

Gilsoft R.I.P.

Founded in the early 1980's to sell computer software, initially for the Sinclair ZX81 and ZX Spectrum, it went on to sell computer software for a large number of machines.  It is probably best known for the Adventure Creation tools Quill, Illustrator (+ addons) and their successor PAWS which in their turn were used to write thousands of games - many released commercially.  For a bit of background you can find and interview with me (Tim Gilberts) here:
