Mostly a console cartridge developer for early 1980s console systems, Imagic occasionally branched out into the computer market.
Followed Activision's lead as the second major independent game software developer, initially staffed with headhunted disgruntled Atari employees. Bill Grubb, Bob Smith, Mark Bradley, Rob Fulop, and Denis Koble had all worked for Atari. The company was the second third-party publisher to make games for the Atari 2600.
The staff also included Jim Goldberger, Dave Durran and Brian Dougherty from Mattel and Gary Kato from Versatec.
