No lads your both wrong. Or both half right.
What happened was the guy who coded Worms was called Andy Davidson he knocked up the first version of worms on Amos. The free giveaway version from Amiga Format. He went to the Computer fair they had a stand he asked if he could show them his game.
They signed him up there and then and considering the non complexity
of the game dynamics, re-wrote it in Blitzbasic. Other versions were
made, he only had a hand in the first but got royalties that made him
rich just from that.
He left Team 17 after Worms Armageddon
