Developer Biography

Kevin J. Thompson started out in 1995 as one of the original 12 QA testers taken on to set up the SCEE 3rd party QA department.

He moved to SCEE Developer support in 1996 where he worked on sample code as well as coding the Official PS Magazines Demo disk system, the ECTS demo disk system and the DEMO1 Demo disk system for the PS1's inbox demo, as well as doing talks at DevCon's in San Fransisco.

In 2000 he moved to Warthog to work on Tom and Jerry in House Trap and some tools, the code in T&J and tools were used in future games for Warthog.

In 2001 he moved to Datel, where I worked on Demo Disk systems until I was moved into a QA Managers position.

In 2003 he moved out of the industry to see if the grass is greener, it wasn't so now in 2006, so he has joined a company called Rusty-Nutz in Liverpool working as a Games programmer on Lemmings EyeToy which was released on 13th October 2006 after winning multiple awards from IGN.
