Game company profile: Starbyte Software

Starbyte Software was a German video game development and publishing company active during the 1980s and 1990s. It was founded in 1985 by three brothers: Gernot, Marc, and Oliver Hillebrand. The company gained recognition for developing and publishing a variety of games across different genres, including strategy, simulation, and sports.

A significant franchise developed and published by Starbyte was the "Starbyte Gold Serie" which consisted of a range of strategy and simulation games. Some of the titles included in this series were "Great Courts" (a tennis simulation), "Bundesliga Manager" (a soccer management simulation), and "Battle Isle" (a turn-based strategy game).
Battle Isle and its sequels were particularly successful and gained a dedicated fanbase. These games were known for their strategic depth and tactical gameplay. The series combined turn-based combat and resource management, allowing players to engage in complex battles on hexagonal grids.

As the video game industry evolved, Starbyte Software faced challenges and eventually ceased its operations in the late 1990s. The company's legacy lives on through its contributions to the gaming world, particularly its strategic and simulation titles.
