Blue Byte Software
The company was founded in October 1988 by Thomas Hertzler and Lothar Schmitt in Mülheim. Their first published game was the tennis simulation Great Courts, released in 1989 by Ubisoft (then called Ubi Soft).
Blue Byte's first big success in Germany and Europe was the turn-based strategy game Battle Isle , completed in 1991. Inspired by the Japanese game Nectaris for the PC-Engine, Battle Isle spawned numerous add-ons and sequels. The company's next big success followed in 1993 with the release of the managerial game Die Siedler, marketed internationally as The Settlers. Settlers also had numerous sequels and became the most well-known of Blue Byte's products.
Over the years, Blue Byte has developed and published numerous innovative titles including Chewy - Escape from F5 and Albion, but most of them were not successful internationally. Efforts to break into the American market failed and success was limited to Germany and parts of Europe.
