Description given in 1999:

REBEL BV is a Dutch chess software developing company completely devoted to chess since 1985. In that remarkable year (1985) our first commercial chess program named REBEL 5.0 was released by Mephisto Hegener & Glaser, Munich, Germany in a stand-alone (dedicated) chess computer.

Since 1994 we produce top chess software for PC distributed by a worldwide dealer network in more than 30 countries.
