Tuesday August 5,2014 : INSPIRED PARTNERS WITH FANTASY AUTHOR AND ENTREPRENEUR
New games in the pipeline
Inspired Gaming Group has entered into a game development partnership with English fantasy author and entrepreneur Ian Livingstone.
Livingstone is the co-founder of the popular series of Fighting Fantasy role-playing gamebooks and the author of numerous books within that series. He is also one of the co-founders of British game production and retailing company Games Workshop. He, along with his partner, is attributed to bringing Dungeons & Dragons to the European market.
“I am both personally and professionally excited to be working with Ian Livingstone," said Luke Alverez, founder and chief executive officer of Inspired. "Convergence is a key trend in our industry at the moment. Our partnership will uniquely focus on leveraging the convergence between console gaming, mobile and gambling. We have some great ideas in the pipeline and we look forward to launching these hit games together.”
“The vision and ambition of Luke and his team at Inspired is impressive," added Livingstone. "This is a new design challenge for me, and I’m looking forward to collaborating with Inspired on new projects, applying video game mechanics and gameplay to server-based gaming products.”
