Ian Livingstone

In our first podcast, we speak to the man widely considered one of the Founding Fathers of British Gaming. Ian Livingstone began his career writing interactive fantasy books before co-founding Games Workshop in 1975 - the retailer that brought Dungeons & Dragons and Warhammer to the UK. In the 1980s, he recognised the potential of the emerging video games industry and began working with Domark, later acquired by Eidos Interactive, producing some of the industry’s most celebrated titles including Tomb Raider and Hitman.

Listen below to hear the prolific angel investor and Meta Games Industry Index ambassador reflect on his incredible career, the power of gaming, and the UK's ability to punch above its weight in this global industry.
