Speaking at Animex Game
Ben started hobbyist games development back in 2003 using GameMaker to create small games played between his classmates. After realising a career could be made out of it, he came to Teesside University to study computer games programming.
During his time there he released two games on the Xbox Live Indie Games service and did a work placement at Ubisoft Reflections working on Driver: San Francisco. Immediately after graduating in 2012, he set up independent games development company Jet Stone Studios with two friends. Their current game in progress, Fuz, is due for release on iOS and Android in early 2013.
