I had known Gremlin and Ian Stewart for a while of course, and Jenny Richard’s who had been the buyer for Centresoft. We had also had some meetings about [...] using Ian’s in-house developed Nintendo dev kit. When things started falling around my ears in 1990, Ian and James North-Hearn were actually visiting to discuss development. Ian was a good egg and wanted to help, and being a canny businessman he saw an opportunity too. There was something in it for both of us really, always the best deal, so I moved to Sheffield as a consultant with a fairly open brief to look for opportunities to help build Gremlin.
