    Worms creator Davidson rejoins Team17 after 14-year absence



    Original Worms 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."

    Sounds cool, although I'm not really big on the Worms franchise. The only Worms game I remember playing was Worms 3D which was decent at best.

    Thanks to Kwes for the signature!

    Worms 3d should never have seen the light of day, worms is awesome in 2d and should never be played in 3d

    Once more into the fray.
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.
    Live and die on this day.
    Live and die on this day.

    Hooray! Would love to see what he might possibly come out with or any new ideas he might potentially give to the new Worms game, even if it's just morale support it'll be great to see the motivation behind the staff pull a cracker of a game together.
