UK Games Industry: Beyond Software

An edited version of this article was published in Retro Gamer, Issue 64 (2009).

Terry Pratt was working for EMAP on an innovative and very popular UK computer magazine when the idea of setting up a video games publisher was first suggested.

“I was the Editor for Computer & Video Games magazine since its launch back in late 1981, and a few years later I had the idea that we might be able to create a software company”, remembers Terry. “I then sold that idea to a number of Boards at EMAP and set it up with Bill Delaney, who was working as Advertising Manager for one of EMAP’s other computer magazines at the time.”
