Join us on a chronological journey as we go through some of the highlights from three decades of the studio responsible for the brilliant Total War. With Creative Director Al Hope and Executive Producer Mike Simpson's input we also journey into the worlds of Halo, Alien, and Vikings.

Of humble port beginnings to large-scale warfare between races of fantastical creatures and beings.

Established in 1987, English developer Creative Assembly is best known as the studio behind the long running Total War series of strategy games. A series that recently took a break from historical recreations of warfare with the release of the excellent Total War: Warhammer. But to get to that point, and today, was a long journey. One of discovery too, with the earliest days of the studio spent porting titles to the MS-DOS platform. 1989 saw the first of these to hit the market with the release of Blood Money, Baal, and Stunt Car Racer on DOS.

“We’ve gone from four people working above an estate agent in Horsham to over 500 across three state-of-the-art studios,” Creative Director Al Hope tells me. “Back in 1987, when Tim Ansell founded Creative Assembly, he was just one-person porting PC games. We are now the UK’s leading games studio. In a lot of ways not much has changed, the spirit behind our work is still the same.”

I loved that Viking game. It was massively flawed, but it did so many interesting things for its time.

Plus Vikings.
