BBC come to Neon Towers
We've been lucky enough to have both BBC Radio Gloucester and BBC Points West pay a visit to our humble abode, but when BBC News called up and asked if they could pop down and see the mothership, we rolled out the red carpet (or the Ikea rug anyway) and welcomed them with tap water and some vaguely fresh donuts.
Dan the Man
And BBC technology reporter Dan Emery came down with his film crew to shoot the team (with a camera not a gun) and talk to CEO Oli Christie about the growth of mobile gaming, what it costs to develop a mobile game and some of the "success" Neon Play has had.
Here's Oli and Dan in deep conversation on some lovely beanbags in our studio.
Lights, camera, iPad...
The piece will be going live soon and we hope Oli doesn't look to grey and old. Here he is showing Flick Football on the iPad.

Oli Christie, CEO of Neon Play, fresh from taking off his make-up (joke) commented, “It was a great honour that the BBC chose Neon Play as a games studio who represented the independent games development community and we hope it shows that there are many small UK developers who are creating fun and addictive mobile games. Long may it last."
