My name’s Jason Coomey. I’m currently working as a graphic designer/sub editor/writer for the Voice newspaper group. It’s published in Kilkenny, Tallaght, Galway and Laois and each week I write a games article for the Kilkenny and Galway editions. They’re written to be fun and interesting and a break from the normal cliched video game coverage you’d see in printed publications.
I come with a big question that’ll hopefully lead to cool stuff for some of us in the Irish gaming industry. I’m thinking that I can write articles about independently developed games created by people who visit this site, people in college and small gaming companies. People who don’t really have a PR agent to get their work out to the masses.
If anybody thinks that they can contribute in some way that’d be great. I know I’m a newcomer to the site but I did sign up before until I realised that the development side of things wasn’t for me.
I think it’d be interesting to read about newly developed local games. It’s become a major thing within the music industry and sites like myspace have really given musicians fantastic opportunities. Lets try and do the same for small game developers! Anything from a small flash game will do. As long as it’s decent enough like.
What do ye think?
