Established in February 2011, Games Catalyst endeavours to bring its unique brand of fact and satire to the videogaming community and, in tandem with 'The Independent', hopefully turn a few non-believers on to gaming while we’re at it.

It isn’t all gloom in these lean economic times as BAFTA award-winning games developer and publisher Codemasters announces it’s to create more than 100 new jobs across the Midlands with an additional 25 joining the company’s 120-strong team in Birmingham.
‘The success of our recent games and our plans for the future means that Codemasters will continue to see growth as we expand our teams here in the Midlands’, said Simon Miles, Codemasters’ Talent Acquisition Manager.
‘The skilled talent pool in Birmingham, along with the support available for developers in the area, and across the Midlands generally has created a dynamic and creative local business community. We are looking to recruit staff from the region as well as enticing some new employees into the city as well.’
Building on the success of its recent games – which includes the best selling series of official Formula One games – Codemasters is building on its long-established presence at its HQ in Warwickshire and bolstering the team based at its games development studio at Tricorn House in Birmingham city centre.
