Located in Galway, Ireland, Romero Games is a game development studio looking for a few great developers.
20 November 2015 -- Romero Games Ltd., a new video game company led by game industry veterans John and Brenda Romero is to open in Galway, Ireland. John Romero is best known for his work on DOOM and Quake while Brenda Romero best known for her work on the Wizardry and Dungeons & Dragons series. Romero Games is an Irish-based game company.
In establishing the new company, Romero Games worked with Enterprise Ireland and their High-Potential Start Up Unit to assess feasibility, determine opportunities and answer critical questions about the tech landscape in Ireland. The company plans to hire 20 to 30 programmers, artists and game designers in its Galway studio as they ramp their team toward full production. Currently, the company is in pre-production on two different game titles.
“After spending a significant amount of time in Ireland while studying the Irish game scene, game institutions and government programs, it was clear that Ireland is a top-tier tech destination,” said John Romero.
In particular, Mr. Romero highlighted Enterprise Ireland’s willingness and ability to make a very complicated venture — moving internationally to establish a new Irish company — a relatively straightforward process. “We knew Ireland was an amazing destination for tech companies. A look at the companies already here told us that. Enterprise Ireland convinced us, answered dozens of questions and in general, sealed the deal.”
Brenda Romero, co-founder of Romero Games also cited Ireland’s existing game and tech infrastructure, cheaper cost of living as compared to US-based tech hubs, educated workforce and strong university programmes.
Romero Games is located in Galway, Ireland.
