Romero Games is home to a group of dedicated, fun and experienced game developers based in Galway, Ireland. We are building a vibrant, fun company culture that enhances the lives of those with whom we work. Everyone here is passionate about their craft. We create and develop the type of games that we love to play.


At present, we have three games in production across the full range of platforms.

Who We Are

 

Everyone at Romero Games is here because we are passionate about making great games. For us, it is a calling. We are friends as well as co-workers. We hang out together, game together and support one another at work and in our independent projects. We cultivate a culture of learning and camaraderie, and we deliberately seek out the best individuals to join us. We also deeply believe in the Irish game dev scene and support it through events, speaking and service at schools and in the community.

We also believe in diversity. Romero Games is founded by a Cherokee and Yaqui Indian as well as a female tech leader. This is reflected in our games and in our company culture.

Galway

Consistently ranked among the top cities in the world!

At some point, you realise you can make games anywhere, and it’s then that you ask yourself those quality-of-life questions. Is this a great place for families? Does it have an amazing nightlife? Is it rich, historic and safe? Does it have amazing educational institutions? Does it have a hardcore tech scene? Is it incredibly beautiful?

If it was good enough for Luke Skywalker, it’s good enough for us, too. With all Galway has to offer, it’s amazingly affordable, too.
