    A big up to Star Cave, on being actively hiring again! It’s great to see Irish companies grow from strength to strength.

    That Reality Engine seems to be flavour of the year for Irish game development!!! Don’t forget to “release early, release often”, just so your fellow game dev-rs can get a sneak peak of prototypes / WIPs that you’re working on :)

    I have a feeling that Derry and Galway are going to be two scalding-hot-spots of commercial development for the next two to three years!!! Hopefully the rest of the country can catch up!

    Good luck…

    Just to let ye know, Star Cave Studios has taken on full-time 5 people from our Internship program 2 weeks ago. More news of this is going to be released on this site in the very near future (we are in crunch time on a number of products currently!)

    And we are going to be putting up more job ads soon for our Xbox 360 dev that requires a number of development titles and years experience to join or very hot talent. More news on this shortly as well.

    It does my heart good to hear news like this.
    After all the flapping about for the last couple of weeks it’s good, neigh, great to see this forum being used as it is meant to be. The nurturing of Irish talent.

    I’ll join Mal in a BIG UP for StarCave. Wish you all the best.

    I reckon 2005/2006 is going to be a big year for Irish game developers. It’s an exciting time for all of us. Being on the cusp of something big like this is priceless and reminds you how lucky ou are to have a job in an industry you love.

    I’m going away for a wee cry now.
    Moo.
