GCC (General Computer Corporation) was started in 1981 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States, by Doug Macrae and Kevin Curran. The company sold Super Missile Attack, a Missile Command enhancement board, and was later sued by Atari over it. Both parties reached a settlement in which GCC would develop games for Atari and stop selling enhancement boards without permission. GCC later created an enhancement kit for Pac-Man called Crazy Otto. It was sold to Midway and became Ms. Pac-Man. [1]

In 1984, GCC shifted its focus to making Macintosh computer peripherals such as the HyperDrive (the Mac's first internal hard drive) and the Personal Laser Printer (the first QuickDraw laser printer). [2]

GCC was also responsible for designing the Atari 7800 system. [3]
