Jamie Thomson has been involved in the gaming industry since at least 1985. He had design credits for early games such as: The Way of the Tiger (Gremlin) which was a number one seller in the UK, Falcon (Virgin), Tower of Despair (Games Workshop) and Ian Livingstone's Deathtrap Dungeon (Eidos).
Immediately prior to taking on Warrior Kings, he was responsible for assessing and specifying the on-line gaming strategy for Eidos, as well as assessing computer games proposals from independent developers and trouble shooting over-running development projects.
In 1999, Jamie began working for Black Cactus. Jamie drew the development team together and managed the business full time beginning in April 1999 acting as Chairman and Creative Director.
Jamie has extensive writing and design credits, with experience in cross-collateralising designs between books, television, radio, games and on-line entertainment. He has authored or co-authored books that have sold over 1,000,000 copies worldwide. These include tie-ins with SEGA products and a variety of innovative fantasy and interactive storybooks, the most successful being the Way of the Tiger series. He has credits for television and radio plays including elements of The Crystal Maze and The Heart of Harkun (BBC R5). Jamie had a teletext game currently running on UK Gold - arguably the first interactive entertainment on set-top boxes.
