Now matter how it grows, Distinctive Developments will always have a base in Sheffield, says managing director Nigel Little.

“It’s where I grew up and it’s in our DNA. It’s a pretty good area to be in. Sheffield has a pretty good history with videogames, dating back to Gremlin, and there are some good universities around.

“Sheffield Hallam has its games course, there are good Masters courses in Hull and Derby, so there are plenty of graduates looking for work in the industry. We’ve got some very talented people around; a good mix of new graduates and staff with maybe 10 to 20 years experience,” he adds.
