Safari Software was a software developer and published founded circa 1989 in Houston, Texas. Patrick Aalto, prior to founding Safari, released a freeware game titled Line Wars in 1989 inspired by the original Elite video game engine. The first game released by Safari was Jason Storm in Space Chase in 1993. After developing several titles, Safari made a partnership with Epic MegaGames (now Epic Games) to distribute titles they would publish. The first game to be released under this arrangement was P-Squared Productions' Traffic Department 2192, released in 1994. However in certain regions where Epic had limited distribution abilities, such as Australia, Safari utilized other companies such as Manaccom.
