Paul Hughes started his programming-career at the age of 13 in 1981, on a Sinclair ZX81. He also programmed for the Commodore PET, VIC-20, TI-99/4a, BBC Micro, Dragon 32, and the Commodore 64.
He worked for Ocean between 1986 and 1992, developing games for the Commodore 64.
After he left Ocean he ended up working for Electronic Arts' Manchester studio - until it was relocated to the south of England in 1997. He then founded Warthog Plc together with some of the employees who were unable to move with EA. He held the position of Chief Technology Officer.
In 2004 Warthog was acquired by Tiger Telematics - the company behind the failed Gizmondo handheld console. After the Tiger Telematics went bankrupt in 2006, Hughes and members of the original team went on to found Embryonic Studios, which in turn was acquired by Traveller's Tales later in 2006 and renamed TT-Fusion.
He is currently working as the Director of Technology at TT-Fusion.
