Ian Livingstone, best known for his involvement at Eidos Interactive, and more recently his work in reforming computer science education in the UK, has been honored for a second time in the British New Year Honours list. Livingstone was previously awarded an OBE back in 2005 for his services to the computer games industry. Now he can add a CBE honor to that, as the British honors system has once again named him for his work in the video games industry. The industry veteran first came to prominence when he co-founded Games Workshop, a tabletop gaming company that now licenses numerous video games, in 1975. He later worked for video game publisher Domark, which became Eidos Interactive, and has served at Eidos' various parent companies ever since. Upon Square Enix's acquisition of the company, Livingstone was promoted to the unusual role of "life president."
