As many of our readers already know Brenda and John Romero moved to Galway in the West of Ireland this Autumn, just in time for our torrential rain and floods. When did they last see rain like that!

They have been busy. They have established Romero Games Ltd.IT Carlow visit by John & Brenda RomeroPicture Credit Brian Gavin Press 22

Brenda was also elected to the board of Imirt, the new association representing game makers in Ireland. See

And now we hear that John Romero has had the 1988 game Dangerous Dave translated into Irish!. Well we are presuming he didn’t do it himself.

It has also been announced that they both will speak at Inspirefest 2016 in Dublin, 30th June- 2nd July.  Inspirefest is an annual science, technology and arts festival which celebrates diversity and inclusion in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). More info on their website

They were both in Ireland last year when Brenda came on a Fulbright Tech Impact Award and visited nearly every educational institution in the country that taught game design.

They probably know more about the West of Ireland than most of the Dubs on here!! (Joke)
