A core team of four friends, working in their spare time, trying to make something neat. Based (mostly) in York, UK.
Programmer/designer. Fairly ginger. Decided on a career in games while at school. Totally blames Dungeon Master and Xenon 2 on the Atari STE. And Street Fighter 2 on the SNES round at Murray's. And well, Nintendo and SEGA in general. Barely studied Maths & Computer Science at Manchester before finding his first job, and spiritual home, in Yorkshire. Made some great friends at Revolution Software before joining Six by Nine, writing games tech for companies such as Codemasters, Eidos, Bugbear and Ubisoft Reflections. Enjoyed being shipped around the world a fair bit. Nearly went to Japan. Figured he'd learned just about enough to follow the indie dream! Often considers going back in time and having a word with himself.
Favourite games: Zelda, Beatmania, Mass Effect, Space Rangers 2, Braid
Currently playing: Diablo 3, Fallout 4

And pots and pans. Resident DJ for underground drum and bass event SECTOR 8. Always looking for new and interesting ways to enhance the gaming experience with futuristic/original audio.
