Software Creations, Ltd. (nicknamed Creations by employees) was a British game developer founded by former Ocean Software programmers Mike Webb and Richard Kay. The company was known for developing arcade, movie, TV and comic tie-ins and for producing some of their own titles such as Solstice. They also employed Tim and Geoff Follin.
When they made NES games, the company usually didn't put staff credits in their games, however, most of the time, the credits can be found in the game's ROM.
In the early 2000s, Creations was bought by Acclaim and renamed Acclaim Studios Manchester.
Every arranger had his own choice, but Tim Follin designed a sound driver, Stephen Ruddy programmed it, and both Follins used it.
Stephen Ruddy programmed Software Creations' music drivers for the NES and Tim and Geoff wrote in hexadecimal.
The SNES sound driver was programmed by Ruddy and Software Creations co-founder Mike Webb. Unlike most other SNES composers who used MIDI interfaces for their SNES music, Similar to their NES driver, Software Creations' SNES sound driver required composers to write their music in 65C816 assembly language machine cone macros. According to Tim, the instrument samples came from several sources, including an Ensoniq ASR-10 and real guitars and bass guitars. Since the music used hexadecimal numbers for notation, a pair of numbers would be typed in; one for the note pitch, and another for the amount of frames. The composers had to make sure all channels had the exact same frame count for proper looping.
In 1994, the company developed a music editor and sequencer for the SNES called Dream.
