Jamie has over eighteen years experience in the video games industry, with twelve of those working on the critically acclaimed Batman Arkham series. Jamie’s game credits include Microsoft Train Simulator, Reign of Fire, Batman Arkham Asylum, Batman Arkham City, Batman Arkham Knight and Arkham VR.
Jamie studied computer graphics at Bournemouth NCCA. After graduation, he worked as a Junior Environment Artist at Kuju Entertainment on the first ever Microsoft Train Simulator. Jamie then transferred to Kuju’s London studio where he worked as a Senior Environment Artist on numerous AAA console titles. Moving on to Rocksteady Studios gave him the opportunity to be a part of a multi-million selling, award winning franchise from start to finish. Culminating with his first exposure to VR, via Arkham VR, his passion for the new medium grew from there and has now led him to REWIND.
Jamie will be bringing his knowledge, passion and expertise to our real-time art creation team helping us craft the next generation of award-winning immersive content.
