Published work N64 icon

Before I did professional firmware and games programming, I used to write C64 games, and the occasional bit of software on VIC-20 and Apple ][

For a long time, I worked at Probe Entertainment in Croydon. Key people then created a worthy successor which I have worked at for 17 years as Hotgen Studios then as Netherock, and as HotGen Ltd.
