Antony Paton (also known as Anthony Paton) is an English video game musician. He was the main composer for Rockstar Games's handheld division Tarantula Studios, and as a result, he mostly composed solely for the Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance. He started off working for Spidersoft in the mid 90s.

Paton wrote his last video game soundtrack in 2004, and has not been credited in a video game since. His whereabouts are currently unknown.

Music Composition


It is suspected Antony wrote MIDI files and converted them to a GBC sound driver. The driver was probably programmed by himself, based on some game credits.

Antony also used real songs in some games. For example, the Character Select music in Grand Theft Auto 2 is actually a Brazilian song known as "Chega De Saudade".
