Dodekaedron Software Creations was a company based in Vantaa between the years 1996 and 2008. It is known for its flying classic Triplane Turmoil, which was developed for DOS. They also had a fantasy cave adventure game Mortis under development, but it was never published, so Triplane Turmoil ended up being the company’s only game.

Dodekaedron is a reference to the English word dodecahedron, and even the company’s logo reflects this word as it has a 12-polyhedron on it. Dodekaedron Software Creations name came from the name of the group making the game, Dodekaedron Squad.
