I was just going through magazine links, making sure things were working etc. when I noticed this article in issue 1 of Personal Computer Games (PCG):

Investment Package - Interview with Richard Jones (of Interceptor Micros etc.)

The lad was 17 at the time but it's much more interesting then the usual "Whizz Kid" interviews / articles of the 1980's.

Some great historical info in there, e.g. he set up Llamasoft with Jeff.

I must do some more research on what he did after the time period of the article.

Bit more info over on Wikipedia in relation to Interceptor Micros. Looks like his Dad was quite involved as well so maybe not quite the one man (boy!) show as it reads in the interview above.

Absolutely. The Joneses went on to set up Players.
