The Queen Bigs Up Codies Brothers

The Queen, yesterday

Code masters Richard and David Darling (see what I did there), the founders of UK based publishing house – and digital racing-car champions – Codemasters, have been awarded Officer Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBEs) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours. This comes about for “services to the computer games industry”. (And beats Molyneux for Empire Rankings, as James G points out in comments.)

The Darlings were first of the bedroom programmers, having started the company from scratch in the 1980s and built it up to the point where they could afford a farm somewhere in Warwickshire. The brothers left Codemasters last year, having sold their slice of the company, are presumably counting their gold in a tower somewhere.

Next up: Lord British actually made a Lord? Jeff Minter knighted? We can but hope, and petition our MP.
