creator Andy Davidson has returned to Team17, just in time for the development of Worms Revolution.
Davidson originally designed Worms
in 1993 as an Artillery-style game featuring Lemmings sprites, then added original worm sprites in an effort to release it commercially. He left the game industry fourteen years ago, according to Team17; we're guessing to pursue other interests like fishing and gardening.
And now he's back at the company, where he will "offer the Worms Revolution
developers his support." So he's not heading up Worms
development just yet. In fact, the announcement notes that he's working on a "variety of new game ideas."
