Our History


Impromptu Software was initially formed in 1995 when Nigel started work on the Impromptu Interactive Music System (i2MS). This grew into a full-time business by 1998 and in 1999 Impromptu Software Limited was formed. Over the following 20 years Impromptu has been supporting clients with technology development for multiple console, handheld, mobile and desktop devices. Initially specialising in cross-platform audio systems Impromptu has now grown to develop apps and games across a variety of genres.
