Melbourne House was an Australian video game developer and publisher that played a significant role in the early years of the video game industry. Founded in 1977 by Alfred Milgrom and Naomi Besen, Melbourne House initially focused on producing games for various home computer platforms of the time, including the Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum, and Amstrad CPC.

Melbourne House developed and published a wide range of games across different genres, including action, adventure, strategy, and role-playing games. Some of their other notable titles include "The Way of the Exploding Fist," a martial arts fighting game that was highly influential in the fighting game genre, and "The Way of the Tiger," an action-adventure game based on the popular book series of the same name.

In addition to developing original titles, Melbourne House also published games from other developers, helping to bring a diverse range of gaming experiences to audiences around the world.

Melbourne House was acquired by the Melbourne-based company Beam Software in 1987, which later became known as Infogrames Melbourne House after being acquired by Infogrames Entertainment in 1999. The studio continued to operate under various names and ownership structures until it was ultimately closed down in 2010.
