|Palace Software was a British video game publisher and developer during the 1980s based in London, England. It was founded in 1983 by Pete Stone as a spin off from Palace Virgin Gold. It was notable for the Barbarian and Cauldron series of games for 8-bit home computer platforms, in particular the ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC and Commodore 64. It caused some controversy with its advertisements in computer magazines, particularly for Barbarian II: The Dungeon of Drax which featured Page Three girl Maria Whittaker as a scantily-clad female warrior. Palace's developers included artist Steve Brown and musician Richard Joseph.
In 1991, Palace Software's parent company, Palace Group, sold it to Titus Software.
