    Glad to see a new studio springing up. I’d like to know the reasoning behind picking Northern Ireland. It’s not one of the bigger development hotbeds in the EU. This is something I’ll be keeping an eye on.

    I believe the reasoning was stated:

    "drawing from Northern Ireland’s existing talent pool, … using the quality of life offered by this unique location to attract the cream of overseas talent … making good use of the opportunities for outsourcing and remote working which modern technology allows"

    A cynic might not credit those as actual reasons, but people who are cynical are usually wrong, aren’t they? Or wait, is that the other way around? Hmm…

    ps. "quality of life" HAHAHAHAHHA :twisted:

    best of luck to the guys, great to have another studio.

    another reason for locating in Derry might be grants and money! Always helps.

    It’s great to see another games company opening up in Ireland!

    I’m sure that with their links to Torc, they’ll be able to focus on making some cool games using the cool technology developed at Torc.

    Good luck guys! It looks like you’ve got a great commercial team together over there, keep us folks on gd.ie posted!
