    Hes set up a company called Monkeystone. Apparently they make ‘not bat’ mobile games.

    They are still going strong.

    Didn’t he leave MonkeyStone after they did the Red Faction port to the NGage?

    He also married a very young Romanian girl. Or something. If I got that wrong I’d like to apologise to Mr Romero and his family and state that Paddy’s opinions are in no way expressive of the opinions of GameDevelopers.ie

    I am not sure he is still there. The site has not been updated for a long time, and both Hall and Romero were hired by Midway several months ago.
    Maybe they still lead Monkeystone, but I would be very surprised given the little activity shown by this studio recently.

    The only new related thing I saw was the port of their flagship title “Congo Cube” to mobiles.
