Gary spent his entire childhood in front of a ZX Spectrum and an Amstrad CPC464. Aged six, he attempted to write his first computer game by making screeching sounds into a tape recorder. He was genuinely surprised when it didn't work. Today he is joint owner of RetroGT and a freelance ColdFusion developer. His favourite games character is Dizzy.
