Barbara Gibb, who took over the editorship of the long-running fanzine Adventure Probe in 1992, set up the Adventure Probe Software label to distribute both games that had lost their original publishers and eventually new software too.

In 1993, Adventure Probe Software took on titles from the defunct The Guild, including Spectrum conversions of Mandy Rodrigues, Simon Avery, and Ken Bond's games.

Under license, they published Jack Lockerby's River Software C64 games, Larry Horsfield's FSF Software back-catalogue and Walter Pooley's adventures. They also distributed Zenobi Licenseware for Atari ST. Later on they also distributed shareware, public domain, and "fixed" adventures.

Adventure Probe continued to publish titles into the second half of the 1990s, and beyond, often with authors choosing to donate any proceeds to the Adventure Probe (fanzine) fund. It can probably be considered the "last man standing" of the original UK homegrown text adventure publishers. The magazine Adventure Probe closed in 2007 after a remarkable 21 year run.
