20 years of Tantalus

Tantalus was started in 1994 by Trevor Nuridin, Jamie Rivett and Tim Bennett and myself, in two rooms of my house. Our first project was a sub contract for Probe in the UK doing the SNES version of a game based on the Stargate movie. Tantalus is now over 20 years old, and like the proverbial hammer has had multiple head and handles over its time. Jamie and Tim left shortly after the start and Arthur Kakouris joined the exec team. On the exec team we have Stephen Handbury, and the current owner and CEO Tom Crago.

The company has been sold twice and bought back, once with a UK game company, and also later on with an investor. I left the company in 2009, but am still quite proud of the company today.

Tom has written a nice piece on Gamasutra, which saves me from really writing an awful lot here, as he covers the history in far more detail than my limited penmanship. So I recommend you click here and enjoy. Australian_Developer_Tantalus_Turns_Twenty
