Juggling school work and pioneering game development from their bedrooms, the most prolific authors of Amastrad and Spectrum games number an amazint 26 #1 bestsellers, 34 original games and around five million sales, and at one point representing over 15% of all UK games sales. This is the saga of the Oliver Twins - 'probably the most prolific 8-bit game developers in the world!'
