Why you should remember Blitz

Mike Bithell highlights the quiet legacy of a truly philanthropic studio.

Early on Thursday morning, Blitz called an end to 23 years working in the video game industry. Founded by the Oliver Twins, two sparky developers who had made their name with the Dizzy series, Blitz never had a big game to its name but the studio had countless successes, and its work for the UK industry was priceless. Its legacy isn't perhaps in the games it produced but the games it helped make possible, and the people that Blitz helped establish careers.
