Developer Biography

David started developing games in the 80's for Icon Software based in Newcastle. He wrote a number of BBC titles including Zorak the Conqueror, Space Station Alpha, Warp 1, Merry Christmas Santa and Frankenstein 2000.

Later he joined Tynesoft in Newcastle and converted an Australian Commodore 64 cricket game to run on the BBC Model B and Electron. He went on to design and write other BBC games and educational titles including US Drag Racing, Phantom, The Genesis Project, Juniors Maths and Murphy Moonman.

He then moved onto PC titles and also managing other Tynesoft projects, these titles included Winter Olympics, Summer Olympics, European Games, Indoor Sports and First Person Pinball.

He has now moved onto more cerebral pursuits and manages many non-gaming projects. He took his wife's name when he was married in the nineties (an equality thing!) but is now divorced and living back in Newcastle.
