Fireman Sam

Ian’s first project as lead developer was the official Fireman Sam CD-ROM, an educational game with 40 activities. He supported the lead designer and led the development team, commissioned animation, artwork, sound effects and music, and provided all the core code and Windows-specific code.

This was in the days when the animation was coming in on sheets of paper that needed to be scanned and coloured!

The disk won a number of educational awards, and was amongst the UK’s first high-profile edutainment titles.
