    the next feature on gd.ie will be about Nephin and I am typying up an interview with Alan Duggan, CEO, in the evenings this week. Past and current deals and games are discussed in the interview.

    Congratulations on the new posting Tony!

    Hopefully you’ll soon be able to say you have an actual released game under your belt! :P

    Does anyone know who’s taking over the reins at Torc?

    Congrats Tony,
    looking forward to a whole new set of slides – “how to get two jobs in the games industry”.

    Don’t suppose you can comment on Torc’s situation? Nor do I suppose we’ll be getting a shiny Torc engine to play with in Coleraine anymore. I suppose I should stay away from the supposition altogether…until the 28th :twisted:
    Supping, now, there’s a harmlessly addictive pastime!

Except to say they’re a talented bunch, I loved working with them and I wish ’em all the best!!
