Davilex Games B.V. was a video game developer and video game publisher, located in Houten, Utrecht, Netherlands. It was founded in 1986 as part of Davilex International, and is most well known for its Racer franchise, with the games London Racer and London Racer II selling over 600,000 copies in the UK.[citation needed] Autobahn Raser's sales in the German market totaled 103,000 units from January through September 1998, which made it the region's sixth-best-selling computer game during that period.[1] In February 1999, Autobahn Raser's computer version received a "Gold" award from the Verband der Unterhaltungssoftware Deutschland (VUD),[2] indicating sales of at least 100,000 units across Germany, Austria and Switzerland.[3] Davilex closed the game division in 2005 because it was not profitable enough, and their games were generally not well received.[4][5]
