[re-up] ERBE & TOPO Soft - Spanish Golden Age - It's a Pixel THING - Ep.#49




NOTE: This is a re-upload of Episode 49. A small fact/detail was inaccurate and is now corrected. A big "thank you" to my viewers that pointed that one out! ;)


Spanish publisher ERBE Software fought, in late 80s, a huge battle against piracy drastically reducing the prices of original games. At a certain point, in 1985, created their own branch for software development to separate it from the main publishing business. So, TOPO Soft was born.

Let's take a look at how this all happened!
