Wild Bill Stealey and Sid Meier cofounded MicroProse Software in 1982. Their flagship title, Hellcat Ace, was the product of a bet. Although the industry struggled during this time, MicroProse successfully developed and published simulation games, producing a number of hits for Atari, Commodore 64, and other early platforms. The studio initially created well-received, military-themed simulation games, such as Silent Service and F-15 Strike Eagle, but by 1991, the company had released three of the best-selling franchises in video-game history: Sid Meier’s Pirates!, Railroad Tycoon, and Sid Meier’s Civilization.
