Legendary game designer joins the team at Kwalee

Any organisation is only as good as the people in it. With the right team anything is possible. With that said, Kwalee's CEO, David Darling, has been especially selective in recruiting only the very best people he can find to work at the company.

So when he found out that games programmer Andrew Graham was returning to the UK, he was very keen to get this extremely highly regarded industry veteran on board.

Andrew is both a very well proven game designer and a highly experienced programmer. His areas of expertise in user experiences and artificial intelligence are special skills that add to the core competencies at Kwalee. The phrenology skull he holds represents his extensive knowledge and understanding of artificial intelligence, which he has specialised with over the last 6 years.

Andrew is most famous, to a massive audience, for the original design and coding of the smash hit Micro Machines, which sold more than 5 million units across several iterations and multiple platforms. He brought totally new and exciting gameplay concepts to the racing genre.

David Darling is especially delighted to have Andrew on board: "Kwalee is looking for special people and in Andrew we have an original thinker and someone who has a deep understanding of fundamental game mechanics, and how to use that knowledge to create amazing entertainment".

Andrew is delighted with his new job as Gameplay Guru at Kwalee: "Mobile gaming just now offers incredible and unique opportunities to innovate and the talented team I have joined at Kwalee are working on a whole pile of exciting ideas. It is a great company to be part of and a great time to join them".
