Philip and Andrew Oliver, AKA The Oliver Twins, have been making Games and running Games Businesses for almost 40 years.
We had our first game published in 1983 aged just 15 and went on to establish three companies, employing over 600 people and creating over 160 games across most gaming platforms and selling over 45 million units with a retail value in excess of £1.2bn.
We founded and ran Blitz Games Studios for 23 years, and went on to sell our next business, Radiant Worlds, to Rebellion in 2017 for a multi-million pound sum. We've picked up several Guinness World Records along the way, including 'Most Prolific 8-bit Video Game Developers', with over 50 games released and over half of them becoming UK #1 bestsellers.
We are regular speakers and guest lecturers at conferences and universities, and were awarded Honorary Doctorates from Coventry University in 2008. Philip became a Visiting Professor at Staffordshire University in 2018 and Andrew became a Visiting Professor at Birmingham City University in 2019.
We have a relentless passion and drive to make great creative games.
Over the last few years we have made a number of investments in UK Game studios and have enjoyed helping them on their journey to success.
We look forward to meeting new creative entrepreneurs and helping them find success.
