Game developer behind the Greedy Bankers games for iOS devices. A Eurogamer Indie Arcade finalist and one of Develop Magazine's 30 Under 30.

Based in Wiltshire, UK, Alistair operates as a one-man indie studio, doing all his own artwork as well as programming in a range of languages.

He has been creating video games since 2001 and operating as a full-time indie developer since 2010.

His recent games focus on physically active touchscreen multiplayer, both on iPad and large-scale Windows 8 devices.

His ethos is that physical contact inclduing pushing and shoving - as well as cheating - enhance social interaction, creativity and expression in play.

Alistair started his studio straight out of university, after graduating with a 1st class Masters in Mathematics from University of Warwick.

He has worked on freelance projects for clients including the BBC and Sparx Ltd, an educational technology company, for whom he develops maths-learning games.
