Blimey! Games was an entertainment software development company in central London. The CEO was Ian Bell, formerly Managing Director and founder of SimBin Development Team.

Blimey! Games comprised a specialist development team of 60 based in locations around the world.


The company was founded in May 2005 by the development team who produced the PC Driving Game GTR - FIA GT Racing Game in 2004.

Blimey! Games also formed the core development team of GTR - FIA GT Racing Game 2, and sports car racing game, GT Legends.

In 2006, Blimey! Games, along with their publishers 10tacle Studios AG, signed a licence agreement for the development of video games with automotive manufacturer Ferrari.

Following the insolvency of 10tacle in 2008, on 8 January 2009, Blimey! went into administration with the business and assets being sold to Slightly Mad Studios Limited, a company that had also been established by Bell.[1][2]
