Revolution's Charles Cecil Awarded MBE In Queen's Honors
Revolution's Charles Cecil Awarded MBE In Queen's Honors
June 14, 2011 | By Mike Rose




Charles Cecil, co-founder and CEO of York, UK-based Revolution Software, has received an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list.

Following the announcement that the industry veteran had been named a Member of the British Empire for his work in the video game industry, Cecil said in a tweet that he felt "thrilled, flattered and humbled."

Cecil set up Revolution Software in 1990 with partner David Sykes, and the company went on to release a string of highly regarded adventure games, such as Beneath a Steel Sky and the Broken Sword series.

He also recently worked alongside Steven Moffat, Piers Wenger, Beth Willis and Anwen Aspden of BBC Wales Interactive on Doctor Who: The Adventure Games, four interactive episodes based on the BBC TV series.

A number of video game industry veterans have been honored in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list in recent times. British video game luminary Ian Livingstone was awarded an OBE in 2006, while Championship Manager creators Oliver and Paul Collyer were made Members of the British Empire in recognition for their services to the UK's video game industry.
