The life president of Eidos certainly keeps busy.
From co-founding Warhammer developer Games Workshop to helping to create Eidos’ biggest properties in Hitman and Tomb Raider – not to mention fighting for increased computer education in the UK – Eidos life president Ian Livingstone is always relevant, in this age of gaming or the next.
Recently, social games developer Playdemic recently appointed Livingstone as its chairman. Its games include Facebook titles like Kingdom Quest and Village life, along with iOS games like Eye Spy!
Livingstone stated that, “The boom in social gaming represents an incredible opportunity for talented game studios like Playdemic. Millions of people are playing games on their smart phones and Facebook.
“Playdemic is a hidden UK success story; first with Gourmet Ranch on Facebook in 2010, and more recently with the hugely successful launch of Village Life. I am delighted to be appointed Chairman of the company, and look forward to working with the team to drive further growth on Facebook, and helping to leverage the studio’s content across mobile platforms.”
