Thalamus was a British computer game company, founded in 1986 by the publishing company Newsfield (Zzap! 64 and Crash magazines among others). The company started with Andrew Wright from Activision in charge and Gary Liddon, former Zzap! 64 writer, as Technical Executive. Many talented programmers like Martin Walker and Stavros Fasoulas created games for the company. Most of the games were written for the Commodore 64 but many of them also spawned conversions for Spectrum, Amiga and other popular computers of the time.
