Although some of his earlier games were written with Your Sinclair adventure columnist & From Beyond fanzine editor Tim Kemp, Jon Lemmon's Compass Software was basically a one-man show. His unique, well-presented games often incorporated special graphical or sound effects, including on occasion, mini-arcade games.
Compass Software closed when Jon felt the sales had declined to no longer make the venture worth his time, leaving his final adventure Night of the Demons unfinished and unpublished.
The Compass games eventually went on to be distributed by The Adventure Workshop.
