Brøderbund Software was an American computer game company founded in February 1980 by Doug Carlston, a semi-professional programmer of UsefulNotes/TRS80 games, with his brother Gary. (The name "Brøderbund," which is "brotherhood" in broken Danish, first appeared in Doug's first game, ''Galactic Empire''.) Along with [[{{Creator/Sierra}} Sierra Online]], Brøderbund was one of the dominant publishers of the early 1980s, soliciting games from independent programmers (of which Jordan Mechner and Will Wright would become the most famous) to publish primarily on the UsefulNotes/AppleII, UsefulNotes/Atari8BitComputers and UsefulNotes/{{Commodore 64}}. Brøderbund's early hits also included non-game software, such as the word processor ''Baker Street Writer'' and the desktop publishing program ''The Print Shop''.

Brøderbund had close ties to Japanese video game companies from its very first year, when it began to distribute games from the Japanese company Starcraft, which would publish several Brøderbund games in Japan. Several Brøderbund games were ported to the NintendoEntertainmentSystem early on, by Creator/HudsonSoft and Creator/{{Irem}}. By 1987, Brøderbund had a subsidiary publishing its own games in Japan.

Today, the only remnants of Brøderbund include a line of software sold by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (and notably missing the "ø") and some of {{Ubisoft}}'s products (which bought the entertainment division, continuing the ''Franchise/PrinceOfPersia'' franchise and selling sequels to ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'').
