Opera Soft was a Spanish computer game developers of the Golden Era of Spanish Software of the 1980s. It released many games for the ZX Spectrum, Amstrad CPC and similar computers in the mid-1980s, but its games were not as popular on the PC. Founded in 1986, the company obtained success with its title Livingstone, supongo (Livingstone, I Presume) in the same year. The game is based on the 19th-century explorer Dr. Livingstone. Within Spain, one of their most popular games was La Abadía del Crimen (The Abbey of Crime), based on Umberto Eco's novel The Name of the Rose.
Like many other Spanish software companies of the time, Opera Soft did not adapt to the generational change and went out of business in the early 1990s with the emergence of 16-bit video games.
Opera created a division to develop sports videogames called Opera Sports.
