Its been a busy summer – I was kinda glad it was raining as I spent most of the time either on the phone or in a plane. Glad to say that we have some interesting games industry speakers lined up for the 11th March :D . Working on getting the details to public announcement stage.
A venue has been finally secured for the planned concert, anyone that can point me towards potential sponsors – please PM; the heads up is much appreciated. I met with a AV guy who wants to use the roof of the venue as a screen, I thought he’d gone mad for a millisecond and then I looked up :roll: 8) and went that’s an awesome idea – I cannot publicly confirm the venue, just yet.
One other detail, that I’m excited about, is the possibility that game(s) created for Games Fleadh events ‘may’ be published.

What does a secondary school student need to enter this competition? It will probably be just myself.
Can I use other peoples sprites? with their permission of course.
I have developed an engine with a team across seas, can I use that?

An amazing team from DIT won the XNA challenge @ Games Fleadh this year, but some serious work on display from all the teams. Very impressive!
The DIT team made a novel version of Asteroids playable with the drum kit from Guitar Hero. Here are my photos/vids of the event, where you can see the game in action:
Well done everyone and big thanks to everyone in Tipperary Institute for putting the whole thing together

This is probably a better time than any to register. (Zachary Davison)
Was absolutely ecstatic to win XNA Ireland, we were basically treated like kings for the enter duration by both Bryan Duggan and TI, and everyone else, and it was absolutely amazing to see people genuinely enjoy playing something we’d created, we were really happy when one guy played our game for ages and became so good at it he was doing stuff we didn’t even think of.
It was very enjoyable talking to the judges as well, for me, the music guy from Popcap, it was really cool to hear someone in the industry uses basically the same set up as me.
I have absolutely no idea what is going on with the game and our ability to release it online at the moment, and I’m not even sure what I’m allowed to say about it, all I know is soon someone is going to tell us what’s going on.
edit: There was a guy wearing a self destructing gameboy t-shirt who did a lot of the footage for the games on the day, if anyone knows who this guy is that’d be awesome cause I need to get in contact with him.
Also whoever that woman who did the photography was is absolutely bloody amazing.

I think we should be able to print some screenshots , and there might be some screenshots in the next edition of Click magazine, if we are able to.
March 15, 2009 at 12:17 am #43596AnonymousInactive
It looks from screenshots etc that there was some nice entries. So what was the industry representation like this year. Last year when I attended as a judge there was alot of judges from various other studios. Did they contribute to the workshop day? Any programming tracks etc?

The judges were from Blackrock Games, Popcap, Microsoft, and I don’t remember who the 4th was. There were 3 speeches, including lead design of Popcap talking about choosing studios to work for and elements people don’t think about looking for game design employment, and Jamie Mcormack talking about the Irish market and the potential it holds.
There didn’t seem to be much about programming on the day(s) but I was fairly busy so I could have missed something unawares.

I think he just wanted to get us all to stay in Ireland when we graduate rather than going to a better country.
