Lionhead Studios' Peter Molyneux OBE to Pen Foreword for Upcoming Book

Gamers at Work is the forthcoming book by Morgan Ramsay, founder of Entertainment Media Council. The book explores the challenges of startups through dozens of interviews with the world’s most successful entrepreneurs in the video game industry, including Electronic Arts founder Trip Hawkins, Atari cofounder Nolan Bushnell, and Naughty Dog cofounder Jason Rubin.

At Lionhead Studios, which was acquired by Microsoft in 2006, Molyneux was instrumental in the creation of the Black&White and Fable franchises. He previously cofounded Bullfrog Productions where he pioneered god games such as Populous and Dungeon Keeper.

Molyneux is one of the most recognized creators of video games. In 2004, he was inducted into the Academy of Interactive Arts&Sciences (AIAS) Hall of Fame. During the 2011 Game Developers Conference (GDC), Molyneux will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Game Developers Choice Awards on Wednesday. He will also be welcomed with a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Fellowship at the 2011 GAME British Academy Video Games Awards. In addition, Molyneux was appointed as Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 2004, and Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et Des Lettres by the government of France in 2007.
