It has been said many times before that the Kingsley brothers were born to make games. Chris, the younger of the two, built his very first computer – all sixteen bytes of it – at the tender age of eleven. Jason, meanwhile, practiced his creativity via an infatuation with Dungeons and Dragons; drawing maps and landscapes on paper for people to play on.
Both went on to work in the industry as freelancers, and two Oxford University degrees later they established their own development company. Aptly enough for their youth, the two named the group Rebellion.
Nearly two decades later, Rebellion sits as one of the biggest development companies in the world today. Its work spans key franchises from the Simpsons to Star Wars, along with prized titles such as the 1999 PC edition of Aliens versus Predator.
