It’s a sad goodbye, but what a legacy he’s left behind – Andy
Ritson is leaving Sumo Digital after 20 years of service.

Andy was one of the original artists when Sumo was founded
back in 2003, in fact employee #008 (there’s over 1,400 of us now!) and has
played an integral part in the creation of some truly wonderful games over the
years as part of the Sumo Sheffield team.

His first project at Sumo was Trixter, an exercise
cycle game, and would later go on to work on beloved titles including OutRun
2
, SEGA SuperStars Tennis, Sonic and SEGA All-Stars Racing, Sonic
and SEGA All-Star Racing Transformed
, Snake Pass, Team Sonic
Racing
, and more.

Thank you for all your hard work, Andy, and all the best!
