Tony Casson – A Gremlin in the Works

Tony Casson, producer on many Gremlin hit titles including Premier Manager is a contributor to A Gremlin in the Works – the companion book of the Gremlin Archive.

Available to order from Bitmap Books, “A Gremlin in the Works” is the officially endorsed history of Gremlin Graphics Limited and a perfect compliment to the Gremlin Graphics Archive.This lavish 572 page book plots the course of the company, from initial successes with Monty Mole, Jack The Nipper and Thing On A Spring, to its ground-breaking Lotus-branded racing games, and eventual purchase by Infogrames in 1999. Officially endorsed by founder Ian Stewart, A Gremlin In The Works by Mark Hardisty features interviews and anecdotes from all of its key members, including Chris Kerry, Ben Daglish and Greg Holmes, along with stalwarts of the UK gaming scene: Rod Cousens, Tim Chaney, Jeremy Heath-Smith, Geoff Brown and Infogrames founder Bruno Bonnell among many others.

Filled with game imagery, memorabilia and archive material such as old letters, business cards, staff photos and game design documents, this is an exhaustive and comprehensive chronicle of one of Britain’s best-loved developers, and a fascinating exploration of the meteoric rise of the gaming scene in the ’80s and ’90s.
