Description Edit | History

David Martin (born February 4th, 1950) is a video games and online publishing veteran. He was the founder of Martech Games, Emerald Software, Caffeine Studios and Wow Zoom Publishing.

Martin, once a chemistry teacher and boardgame designer, first started programming with the school computers in the early 1980's and then moved onto the ZX Spectrum at home. In 1982 he set up Martech Games, so becoming one of the early pioneers of computer games publishing for home computers and video games consoles. He was also the co-founder of Emerald Software in 1988. In 1990 he joined Sheffield based PLC Gremlin Interactive as Marketing Director and became actively involved with the promotion of the famous Zool and Lotus among others. Then in 1996 he decided to set up another company, Caffeine Studios, which after a handful of successful video games, was acquired by Rage Software in 2000. As part of the agreement, Martin joined Rage as Licensing Director. Here he is credited with obtaining the publishing rights from International football star David Beckham and the Rocky movie franchise for successful console games.

At this point Martin decided to take a break from the highly competitive video games market and venture into other projects. He developed and launched, with his wife Annette, the award-winning Gift of Englightenment board game. The game was sold worldwide and was runner-up in the UK’s prestigious 'Gift of the Year' awards and a finalist in the USA’s COVR (The Coalition of Visionary Resources) awards. The game was also selected as a gift for all the movie stars at the 2005 Emmy Awards. In 2006 he formed, with wife Annette again, Wow Zoom Publishing and in 2007 they launched an innovative membership site Pin-Up WOW! with a focus on pin-up and glam photography.
