“Like it or loathe it, the computer-games market is the biggest entertainment market in the world”, says Philip Oliver, who along with his twin brother Andrew, began writing computer games at 13 and founded Blitz Games in 1990. The Leamington Spa company now produces games for the Microsoft Xbox, Sony PlayStation 2 and Nintendo GameCube. Hit games such as Fuzion Frenzy have helped sales rise 57% a year from £2.2m in 1999 to £5.5m in 2001.
