An exclusive talk by UK games industry pioneer Andrew Hewson has been released publically for the first time. In the three-part video of his seminar, entitled “Hints & Tips for Videogame Pioneers” (in keeping with his upcoming book of the same name), Andrew describes the fascinating story behind the formation of Hewson Consultants, the production of some of their hit games and his key lessons from the formative decades of videogames.

Part 1: The Birth of Hewson Consultants


Part 2: The Games


Part 3: Key Lessons


Andrew Hewson was the founder of Hewson Consultants, 21st Century Entertainment and the founding Chairman of United Kingdom trade body ELSPA (now known as UKIE). His companies were known for producing original smash hits like Paradroid, Uridium, Nebulus, Cybernoid, Pinball Dreams and Pinball Fantasies as well as promoting famous developers like Andrew Braybrook, Raffaele Cecco, Stewart Gilray and the original founders of DICE.

In 2013 Andrew Hewson reformed Hewson Consultants Ltd, the celebrated retro-games outfit he originally founded in 1980, in order to write & publish his new book “Hints & Tips for Videogame Pioneers” which was successfully funded on Kickstarter in November 2013. The book is scheduled for release later this year.
