Tim Ansell last edited by JonKrag on 06/10/20 02:58PM View full history

Tim Ansell is a British video game developer and founder of Creative Assembly - now a game development studio of around 500 people.

Ansell began programming professionally in 1985, working on Amstrad CPC titles along with conversions to Spectrum, Commodore 64, Atari 800 and IBM PC/Tandy formats. Ansell also had extensive experience of working on the FMTowns, a Fujitsu machine developed for the Japanese market on which he did R&D work for Psygnosis. Later Ansell founded Creative Assembly and initially kept the company small so that he could pursue his love of programming games, but by 1996 it was clear that single-team developers would struggle in the future. Therefore Ansell hired his first two employees, one of which was Mike Simpson. Creative Assembly was aquired by SEGA in 2005, and Ansell left shortly after.
