DR Studios joins Tiga

DR Studios Ltd, a UK based independent software developer, has joined Tiga.

Founded in April 1998 and based in Milton Keynes, DR Studios is a multiplatform games developer, currently developing games titles for the Wii, DS, PC, 360 Mac, Iphone and download space.

Clive Robert, CEO of DR Studios, said:

“DR Studios is delighted to join Tiga. Richard’s work in increasing the profile of Tiga and therefore of the UK games development community as a whole has been nothing short of excellent. DR Studios are proud to be a part of Tiga.

“The UK games industry has never had it tougher and in this challenging economic climate it is paramount that we stand together as one voice and make it known that the UK games business is an industry that people want to know about. The UK development community’s slip to 5th in the world rankings has a direct correlation with the lack of governmental recognition and support. The only way this on-going decay can be stopped is by the UK development community standing together and showing the rest of the world what it can do given a level playing field; Tiga represents that UK development unity. I would encourage every developer in the UK to join Tiga and help the UK regain the development crown it once had.”

Richard Wilson, CEO of Tiga, said:

“I am really pleased by DR Studios’ decision to join Tiga. Clive Robert, Tony Bickley (DR Studios’ COO) and Suzanne Tomkinson (DR’s CFO) run a highly experienced, innovative development studio. It’s a privilege to be able to represent industry professionals of Clive, Tony and Suzanne’s calibre.”
