Braben is famous as the co-author of Elite, which was released in September 1984 and soon became part of the reason people bough BBC Micros. The winner of Reg's Antique Code Show All-time Classics Award, it is widely hailed as the game which attracted a generation to computers and programming.

This understanding of the importance of a grounding in technology is reflected in Braben’s involvement in Raspberry Pi. His company, Frontier Developments, is now working on a 21st Century version of Elite which has been funded as a kickstarter project and which will support the Oculus Rift.
