Game company profile: SSI Strategic Simulations Inc.
Strategic Simulations, Inc. (SSI) was a prominent American video game developer and publisher specializing in role-playing games (RPGs) and strategy games. The company was founded in 1979 by Joel Billings and initially focused on creating wargames for personal computers, particularly for platforms like the Apple II and later the IBM PC.
SSI gained significant recognition and success in the 1980s and 1990s for its RPG and strategy game titles, many of which became classics in the gaming industry.
In 1994, SSI was acquired by Mindscape, a software company specializing in educational and entertainment products. Over time, SSI's prominence began to wane, and the company faced challenges in adapting to the evolving gaming market. The company's operations gradually scaled down, and by the early 2000s, SSI effectively ceased to exist as an independent entity.
