Tim and Chris Stamper


Tim and Chris Stamper

Tim and Chris Stamper (artist and programmer, respectively) are the co-founders of Ashby Computers & Graphics (better known as Ultimate Play the Game) and later Rare. They have produced video games such as Sabre Wulf and Knight Lore for the 8-bit home computers, Battletoads, Donkey Kong Country and GoldenEye 007 for Nintendo systems and most recently Kameo: Elements of Power, Perfect Dark Zero and Viva Piñata for Microsoft's Xbox 360.

On 2 January 2007, it was announced by 1UP.com that both Tim and Chris Stamper had left Rare to "pursue other opportunities",[1] leaving no statement regarding future plans.

The Stamper brothers have since moved into engineering and land development[citation needed]. In 2004 Tim Stamper paid £17m for Eydon Hall in Northamptonshire.[2].
