Micro Machines developers

Trying to find some info on Micro Machines to cover in an upcoming podcast but the best I can find online is that it was developed by Codemasters. Can't seem to find any interviews or articles that actually say who developed it. Does anyone have any ideas who was involved?

Yep, seen that Want to know who the team behind it was though. With it just being listed as CodeMasters I suspect there is a team that works across all of the Amiga games.

If you had to guess it could be more or less the same team who worked on the Sega Mega Drive port:

At least the graphics are ~ the same and Neil Hill might be at least one of the programmers: http://www.lemonamiga.com/games/list...le=Neil%20Hill

Yeah i may be wrong, was just reading about how they were using an Amiga to develop the NES version, presumed a lot of cross development work went on.

Reviews were in

Amiga Power (October 1993) page 30-32

CU Amiga (November 993) Page 70-71

Amiga Action (December 1993) Page 58-59

Amiga Format (November 1993) Page 96-97

if that helps the OP find more Info

From what i gather;

Andrew Graham did the original NES version, but did Amiga stuff previous which is why his name is mentioned, but looks like Charlie Skilbeck did the Megadrive and Amiga versions coding wise.

Oooh he replied! Charlie Skilbeck has said he was behind the coding and they used the graphics from the MD edition.
