Over 170 British games industry leaders have signed up to support Ian Livingstone and Rick Gibson’s call for the founding of the British Games Institute, just 2 days since the initiative was announced.
Some of the UK’s biggest games companies – Frontier, Sumo Digital, Creative Assembly, TT Games, Team 17, Codemasters, Playground Games – and most influential figures have so far backed the proposal.
As well as UKIE and TIGA, senior figures from many of the UK’s leading games and investment companies, charities and educational establishments have added their support. Senior figures now backing the BGI include Peter Molyneux, David Braben (Frontier), Debbie Bestwick (Team 17), Carl Cavers (Sumo), Tim Heaton (Creative Assembly), Ian Hetherington, Frank Sagnier (Codemasters), Jon Burton (TT Games), Miles Jacobson (Sports Interactive), David Lau-Kee and David Gardner (London Venture Partners), Michael Acton Smith and Ian Chambers (Mind Candy), Trev Williams (Playground Games), Tim Woodley (505 Games), John Earner (Space Ape Games), Hugh Binns (EightPixelsSquare) and many more from the sector.
Rick and Ian are particularly grateful to Philip and Andrew Oliver from Radiant Worlds for getting the message out to the Made in Creative UK group.
