One of the fastest-growing game development houses, Live 5 will have welcomed seven new games
developers and graphic artists within a 12-month period.
The new recruits, who range from apprentice to senior levels, will join the existing Live 5 team
and constitute a significant expansion for the Wolverhampton-based company.

“It has been a phenomenal 12 months for Live 5,” says Lloyd Butler, CEO. “Following the success
of Live 5’s first title; ‘The Sky’s the Limit’ which was such a hit with Sky VEGAS players, we have
consolidated our position with Stairway to Heaven and demand has been so incredible, that we are now
expanding.” Live 5’s signature style of feature-rich, pub-style games has resonated with the player base
and led to a succession of high-profile orders. To date, Stairway to Heaven has been taken up by Sky
Vegas and Rank Group PLC among others. In addition, the company has been awarded its Alderney Gambling
Commission Licence. “Such is the demand for our titles among blue-chip clients that we have had to
increase our development schedule to meet the demand,” adds Chairman Roy Howell. “These new appointments
reflect a new era for Live 5.”
