Positech Games is a one man company based in the UK (England). It was formed by gaming geek Cliff Harris in 1997 when he was working as an IT support guy. Cliff has been writing and selling games for 20 years now. Cliff does ALL the programming and design for all of his games(obviously not the ones developed by third-party studios) , which use an engine he coded from scratch He also handles all the tech support and marketing of the games. Yup, Cliff works pretty darned hard. He also has to contend with his highly demanding cats Jadzia and Jack during his working day. (Milo, our second cat was sadly hit by a car and died many years ago) Cliff used to work for a UK company called Elixir, who did Republic and Evil Genius. After that he worked at Lionhead as an AI / Game coder for ‘The Movies’ When that game finished he left to work for himself fulltime.
At the start of 2006, Cliff worked for Maxis on a ‘gameplay prototype’ for the ‘Sims’ franchise, then he started making games just for his own company.Positech Games has been Cliff’s full-time job ever since.
