Philip and Andrew Oliver had their first video game published in 1983 when aged 15. They rose to fame as the ‘The Oliver Twins’ developing many hugely successful games including the ‘Dizzy’ and ‘Simulator’ series published by Codemasters. They wrote so many games that they are probably the most prolific developers of 8 bit games in the world. They are now co-founders, with Richard Smithies, of a new company, Radiant Worlds, based in Leamington Spa, with over 100 employees and producing the massively multiplayer online game SkySaga.
