Pete Hickman has joined London based developer Mediatonic as head of production. Hickman had previously worked with Eidos as an executive producer on a number of casual titles.

"Mediatonic is the UKs most exciting and creative video game developer, so its great to have joined the team and get stuck into some of its most demanding projects," Hickman said of the appointment.

"In my role as head of production, Ill be helping to really cement our reputation as creators of world-class games for digital download on all current and future gaming platforms."

Best known for original games like Monsters (Probably) Stole My Princess and Who's That Flying, Mediatonic has also built over 100 games for established entertainment brands like Sonic and Diner Dash.
