History of Epyx
One of the greatest video game companies ever. Seriously. They're right up there with Squaresoft. Almost all of their games were hits, and rightly so. They describe their games as Strategy Games for the Action-Game Player.

Epyx was founded in 1978 by Jon Freeman and originally called Automated Simulations. They grew to over 200 employees around 1986, but later filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy. They overcame bankruptcy, but finally disappeared around 1991.

American software house, which can be classified as "BIG SOFTWARE HOUSE". The EPYX produced games for C64 and many other platforms, these games were usually published from Us Gold. The beginning of the Epyx was not very convincing: PIT STOP and BREAK DANCE showed that the programming skill were good but that really this house needed were good ideas to work with. The idea that the programmers had was to try to convert to games the sports.

It is known that the Epyx started a long tradition of sporting games that would led this software house to produce in few years:SUMMER GAMES, SUMMER GAMES II, WINTER GAMES, WINTER GAMES II, STREET SPORTS BASKETBALL, STREET SPORTS BASEBALL , STREET SPORTS FOOTBALL, games that, were converted to all the existing platforms.

The series of the sporting games was occasionally interrupted from the production of other important games: IMPOSSIBLE MISSION , IMPOSSIBLE MISSION II, BARBIE, DESTROYER.

Where did they go ? The EPYX existed for long, but only to convert games produced on C64. It was the pot of gold of the Us Gold: the only good games published from Us Gold were the one produced from Epyx.
