We began as a two person team who had been designing and making games together at Frontier Developments for 5 years, before finally deciding to strike out on our own and explore making games together independently. We made a fantastic game called Overcooked that we just know you’re going to love. (To fill your eyes with it, do a click here.) In 2016 we became a team of three…4 if you include the cat…oh and we bought a kettle…

Phil (@ThilDuncan) – People often ask me what I love most about games. OK maybe not often, or even at all, but if they did I would probably be too excited to answer them. Games are this gorgeous wonderful thing which I’m so excited to be a part of. They make people laugh, smile, cry, they bring people together, they educate, they explore, they divide, they scare the poop out of you… actual, no-fooling poop! Who wouldn’t want to be a part of something like that!
(I draw pictures and I design things)
Oli (@OliDe_Vine) – …and I code stuff!!!! Code is about flexibility, it’s for gameplay. I exist to shorten the distance between ideas and real actual things and I absolutely love games. I’ve been coding since I was 5, I got taught the fancy numbers by the Cambridge wizard school and I’ve done my time in the industry. Games are THE medium for conveying experiences and we can experience so many more things than we do in our games right now. So let’s do that!
Gemma (@GemmaLeeWrites) – I write stories and make Kevin the Dog *BARK!* (I’m also a writer for theatre and radio.)
I’ve loved Video Games ever since I was a little ‘un. And if 8-year old me could see I ended up developing them, they would SQWEEEEEE.
I love this industry. I’m very proud to be a part of it.
As well as scribbling, I’m also the Community Manager and Business Developer for Ghost Town Games.
