Revolution Software (RevSoft) is a programming group for the TI-83+ graphing calculators, made up of and started by former members from other disbanded programming groups.

They have released some high-quality assembly games including Space Station Pheta, a port of the popular platformer, and Wizards, a port of the Magic: The Gathering trading card game. They also had several cool projects in development, including an RPG shooter game called ColdFusion, a puzzle game similar to Bejeweled called Cubez, and the much hyped and always soon-to-be-released Zelda.
Probably their most important contribution is the suite of software tools that they created for doing z80 development called Wabbit Studio. It includes three different pieces of software:
- Wabbitemu — An accurate emulator/debugger for the TI-82, TI-83, TI-83+(SE), TI-84+(SE), TI-85, and TI-86
- SPASM — The fastest Z80 assembler with extra features supporting TI calculator development
- Wabbitcode — An integrated development environment with auto-complete, syntax-highlighting, and comprehensive source-level debugging
Some of the members of Revolution Software were previously members of other programming groups including James Montelongo (Greenfire Software), Josh Mottaz (Nexus Programming), Travis Supalla (Epic Programming Studios, Greenfire Software), Robert Kuhfss (z80 Revelation), Bram Tant (Drubu Productions, Greenfire Software, Maxcoderz Software), Donald Straney (Epic Programming Studios), and Kalan Scallan (United-TI).
Revolution Software was formed in December 29, 2004 by Jonathan Janevski and Travis Supalla. They had both been members of the Greenfire Software programming group, but when it was disbanded in September 2004 they decided to start their own group instead of joining Maxcoderz like some of the other members did (in particular, Vincent Junemann and Ben Ryves).
The group originally got hosting through Vincent Junemann's Calc WebZine and used the site URL http://www.calcwebzine.com/revsoft/, before purchasing their own custom domain name http://www.revsoft.org. In Spring 2011(?), the two people responsible for hosting (Jim_e and Kevin Boyer) stopped their involvement in the group and could not be located. Subsequently, the domain name was not renewed, and the group lost it. The forum hosted on the site was also lost and the group members lost all of the files that they had stored on the site. Thankfully, Daniel Thorneycroft (Tifreakware) graciously offered to provide temporary hosting for the group, so the site was moved to http://revsoft.tifreakware.net and now uses the domain name http://www.revolutionsoftware.org.
