    Lads, any news on that rumour that was floating about a while ago…you know, that some Ex-Rare staff were looking to set up a company in Ireland?

    Also; Was it going to be games or animation or what?

    And check out their website here. Nothing really on it right now but I’m sure as they continue to progress they’ll launch the site with more content. There is an email address to ask for more information on the site.

    Originally I didn’t know so I looked on Google. Page four on this PDF document is the only site I can find which has information with regards to their location.
