'''Ocean Software''', founded in 1982 by David Ward and Jon Woods, was one of the biggest developers for the CPC.
Ocean developed not only for the CPC of course but also for Atari ST, Amiga, Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum.
They also were one of the few major companies that supported the [[Plus|Plus]] range (especially so since their cartridge game, Burnin' Rubber, was distributed with each CPC+ computer).
During the 80s Ocean was one of the biggest software companies, constantly crunching out new titles.
At one point they even absorbed Imagine, an ambitious software house that went bust.
A short-lived serious software arm, [[Ocean IQ|Ocean IQ]], published the [[Laser Basic|Laser Basic]], [[Laser Genius|Laser Genius]] and [[Laser BASIC Compiler|Laser Compiler]] titles.
Although Ocean put out some really good games, they also built a reputation of publishing trash games based on movie licence after movie licence.
In 1998 [[Infogrames|Infogrames]] bought Ocean Software.
