Gaming Ads: Domark Software

Domark was a U.K.-based company founded in 1984 by Dominic Wheatley and Mark Strachan. While both founders were knowledgeable about marketing, neither was familiar with game programming and so they focused on publishing games developed by others during the company's early years before hiring in-house staff to create games. In the early '90s Domark became Domark Software and a U.S. branch was opened in California. Eidos acquired Domark Software in late 1995 and the Domark name was dissolved in mid-'96.

I've currently got nine ads for Domark, three of which are very similar ads for Flying Nightmares. Based on the ads, Time Warner and Tengen (which was acquired by Time Warner) distributed many of Domark's games in North America.
