Gamers who fancy taking the new Lamborghini Centenario for a spin across the Australian outback, or racing a Mustang through the rainforest, can do so with the latest release in this developer’s Forza Horizon series. Players can customise their car, the in-game music and even the sound of their horn. The Leamington Spa-based developer — renowned for its realistic graphics — produces the game for Microsoft, which sells it on the Xbox and Windows 10 platforms. Under co-founder and chief executive Gavin Raeburn, 48, new games and a growing fanbase helped lift sales to £10.6m in 2014.
