Adelaide has a long history in game development.
Ratbag was one of the largest studios in Australia in it's day.
Founded in 1993 by Richard Harrison and Greg Siegle, Ratbag made a name for itself producing solid racing titles. And it's at Ratbag that Phil cut his teeth in commercial game development, scoring a programming role only months before Ratbag was closed by its parent Midway.
Many of the Ratbag team, including Phil, landed roles at Krome Studios, a Brisbane headquartered studio. Here he was able to work on huge titles such as Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and truly hone his craft.
Krome Studios Adelaide was closed in 2010 and it was at this time that Phil and some of his now ex-colleagues went on to found Mighty Kingdom to build not only games but unique apps as well.
Phil and Mighty Kingdom developed Happy Inspector, that first went through StartMate and then Dave McClure's 500 Startups accelerator, and they've also made headlines developing iModellling, an app that helps autistic kids to develop their social/communication skills.
Phil is an Adelaide legend and you're not going to want to miss this chance to hear his story first hand.
