Hello Cave Dwellers!
Join us for a very special day as we welcome Simon Phipps into The Cave!
Simon is an artist and self-taught video game designer who has been working in the games industry since he made his first game in 1982, Jet Power Jack for BBC Micro, while still at school. Since then he has worked on the likes of Rick Dangerous, Bubba ‘n’ Stix, Shadow Man and Burnout Paradise, among many others.
Simon will join us for a day in which you'll get to have a chat with him, play some of the games he worked on, look at some of his original art and design documents and watch a talk about his career, which you can give your full attention to or listen to while playing on the many systems in The Cave.
The day will include:
• A special talk from Simon about his life in the industry
• An exclusive look at his original artworks and design documents
• A chance to try some of the games Simon has worked on using genuine vintage hardware
• Full access to The Cave to explore and enjoy
• A buffet lunch, included in the price of your ticket

The Cave is located on the 4th floor of an 18th-century mill, and there are approximately 40 steps up to its entrance. Unfortunately, due to the listed nature of the building, there is no elevator.
