Charles-Nickson Enterprises was a American multinational video game developer, publisher, distributor, and licensor located in New York City, NY.
Charles-Nickson Enterprises was founded by Charles O' Neil (b. 1937, d. 2015) and Jane Nickson (b. 1939, d. 1998) former rivals in computing at their local college in which they attended (and graduated from) in the 60's, in New York City.
In 1979, Charles was fired from MECC (the Minnesota Educational Computing Consortium) for goofing up while programming on a game. Charles managed to track down Jane and formed a bond with her. The two then knocked out a old beer bottle closet in the back of Jane's father's pub, Mark's Beer House. Jane then sold her imported 1976 MEBEA Robin (three-wheeled car) to purchase $1,600 worth of computers and game programming equipment and began selling video games at their local department store. Their games proved so popular that one year later they were able to sell their games nationally. In 2009, the family that Jane sold the Robin to back in 1980 donated the car to Semi Logic Entertainments, Inc. in order to buy a new oven. The car has since been restored and has appeared with Jane's daughter Marion at various events since.
In 1996, their best moment of fame came when they helped work on the first ever Greeny Phatom-themed video game.
