The man who helped launch The Witcher, Dark Souls and Enslaved

It’s a genuine pleasure to introduce one of the most well known faces of the UK games industry to you today, and more than that, someone who’s helped bring among the biggest and most beloved game series to our shelves. I’m talking about the likes of The Witcher and Dark Souls – and they don’t come much bigger than that.

I distinctly remember talking to this person around the launch of The Witcher 1, in fact, back when no one here knew what it was. Then several years later we were in a Scottish castle together at a lavish play test event for The Witcher 3 – an event they had a large hand in organising.

They’ve also had a significant hand in delivering many other games here, from Enslaved: Journey to the West to Ni No Kuni, and from Enter the Matrix to Pac-Man. There’s a good chance they’ve been involved with many of the games you like in the more than two decades they’ve been promoting and marketing them.
