    I though that ‘Journey to the Center of the Earth’ was being done by an Italian or French developer…let me do some research

    http://www.frogwares.com/ doesn’t seem to be working at the mo…

    [EDIT] – The publisher is French – yay I win:

    Yup ‘.com’ works now…must have been server prob along the line.

    I dunno – is this not just a subsidiary of a French company, rather than an Irish owned company?

    All the games just seem…….French….plus the name ‘frogwares’ – self deprecating?

    Might do no harm to invite them out to one of the shindigs, see what they’re actually up to.

    Sounds like they are the company that took over MS’s localisation from Sandyford. It is gone from there now, yes?

    Sounds about right. As far as I’m aware, there is another localisation company around Blackrock in Dublin, I remember reading something about them doing the European language version of one of the Final Fantasy Games.
