  • Bio

    Karl Jeffey is a legend in the video games industry who is passionate about the power of innovation & entrepreneurship to transform our world. One lunchtime in 2012, at the seaside with Mel Croucher, John Piper and Andy Stagg, they were celebrating how today’s games opportunities felt like the golden age of the 1980s all over again. And Karl said, “OK, so let’s become Automata all over again, and have some fun!” They agreed on the spot. A successful games programmer in his own right since 1987 (Rampage, Populous, Back To The Future, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, Silent Hill), Karl Jeffrey is also Director of Hyperion, CEO of Arooga and Chairman of Climax, the independent video game development company he founded.
