Developer Biography

Tony originally started working in the video game industry as a bedroom coder at the young age of 15, writing games for Sinclairs ZX81 and Spectrum computers. He first joined Telecomsoft in 1985 working in software evaluation and as a producer. After a sabbatical in 1988, Tony helped set up and run Millennium Interactive which later became Sony Cambridge. A short spell as a Senior Producer at publisher Mirrorsoft was then followed by a move to video game developer Probe Entertainment in 1992 - progressing from Senior Producer to Development Director. Tony stayed at Probe for 7 years before eventually joining Climax to establish Climax Brighton in November 1999 in the position of Managing Director.
