Traveller's Tales

Few experiences in life compare with the breathless excitement of your eighth birthday and unwrapping a LEGO AT-AT Walker kit. Still, 15 years or so after the event, being paid to relive the memory isn't bad recompense for the transition to full-time employment.

"At the start of a project, we'll get the new LEGO sets in and someone will stand up and say, 'I know this is a hassle but can you stop what you're doing and build these please?'" laughs Neil Crofts, a lead character artist at game developer Traveller's Tales. "What can I say? It's a fun environment to work in. It's LEGO! Everyone's sat around like little children quietly building stuff. Actually, I'm pretty rubbish at it," he reveals. "Even though the kits are designed for kids aged nine to 11, after a while I always start to think that there must be some bits missing."
