    well done to all at the Games Fleadh yesterday – there was a great turnout, helicopter in tow – which you can see on the front of the business section of the Irish Times today. There were also news segments on the 9pm and late news on RTE 1 television.

    Well done to all the teams who took part in the XNA College Challenge Cup – esp. the two QUB teams.

    Congrats also to the winners of the Engineeers Ireland game awards. I can’t remember the winners of all the categories but the following got awards – BatCat, Pufferfish, Superfunplay, PopCap, Tribal, Open Emotion and Gala. Great to see the small indies showing their games.

    Pics etc. to follow
