Dungeons & Dragons creator to speak at Game

16 September 08

Animex Game is delighted to announce that Ian Livingstone OBE will be speaking at the next festival courtesy of BAFTA.

BAFTA Ian is a leading pioneer of interactive entertainment and fiction. In 1975 he founded Games Workshop with Steve Jackson and launched Dungeons & Dragons in Europe, and the Games Workshop retail chain. In 1977 he launched White Dwarf, the UK’s first interactive games magazine, and was its editor for five years. In 1982, again with Steve Jackson, he devised Fighting Fantasy, the series of interactive gamebooks that sold over 15 million copies in 23 languages as well as inventing many board games.

He made the natural progression into the games industry and is currently Creative Director for Eidos where he is instrumental in securing many of the company's major franchises including Lara Croft:Tomb Raider and Hitman.

His many awards and accolades include an OBE in the 2006 New Year’s Honours List for his contribution to the computer games industry.
