Creator: Rare

Rare Ltd., is a Twycross-based (though they started in Ashby-de-la-Zouch) video game development company founded by Chris and Tim Stamper in 1982. They're famous for their pioneering of sophisticated technology to make video games, the sheer amount of crap they get past the radar, the idiosyncratic little mysteries they weave into their games that leave gamers pondering for decades, and their media-shy nature.

They've created some games for the ZX Spectrum, for which they attained most of their early fame (as "Ultimate Play the Game"), and then for Nintendo, for which they earned their second wave of fame, but have since moved on to working under Microsoft.
