Enjoy a unique evening with Ocean Software at The Centre for Computing History

Founded in 1984, Ocean Software became one of the largest European video game developers/publishers of the 1980s and 1990s, developing dozens of games for a variety of systems. Their back catalogue includes titles such as Chase HQ, Daley Thompson's Decathlon, Robocop, Matchday, Highlander, The New Zealand Story, Jurassic Park and many more!


This Saturday (14th May) at Cambridge's Centre for Computing History, three legendary individuals - Simon Butler, Mark Jones and Stephen Thompson, who were at Ocean right from the start - will be talking about what it was like to work for this iconic company back in the day. There will also be a Q&A and a chance for you to get your Ocean games signed!

The Centre will also be open late after the talk and will have all the old Ocean favourites out for you to play on the original systems. Feel free to bring along some drinks and nibbles.

The Centre will open for the evening at 6pm, and the talk will begin at 7pm. The Centre will close at 10pm.  You can book your tickets here.
