In today’s globalized world, consumers are no longer content with sourcing products from the same places all the time. Just as readers now want to experience diverse stories from different cultures and moviegoers long to be exported to new exciting worlds, gamers wish for more diverse offerings of games, which don’t always just come from Asia and the US.
With this in mind, here are some games that were born and bred on the Emerald Isle, and that offer a new twist to existing franchises as well as creating new games from scratch. Why not read about them and then check them out!
Give Time the Slip with Retro Games
There’s something beautifully retro about the games that Timeslip Softworks create.
Both their Vigilante and Deadstone titles have that hard-boiled feel of detective novels or arcade shooters and are certain to delight fans of games that were more about skill and cunning rather than flashy graphics.
Do You Have the Power?
Ever since 1996 Paddy Power has been leading the charge when it comes to providing high-quality online games, be it roulette, blackjack or baccarat. What started out as a small operation based in Dublin has now become a global player.
The company has never forgotten its Irish roots and continues to offer up a lovely range of games both old and new, as well as making casino bonuses available for those players still yet to be initiated in the Irish gaming experience.
Set Sail for Vela Games
One of the most exciting new games developers coming out of Ireland today is Vela. They were founded by people who cut their teeth at gaming giants such as Riot and EA, and recently garnered over €3 million in seed funding, meaning when their first games roll off the production line they’ll be well worth the wait.
Get Those Digits Working!
Digit is Ireland’s biggest game developer and most recently worked on Star Trek™ Fleet Command. This was a huge boon not just for their company, but also the Irish gaming sector as a whole and should lead the way for more big-name games to emerge from Ireland.
If space battles and the final frontier aren’t quite your thing then they also have an amazing strategy game called Kings of the Realm, but be aware that although the game is initially free, you will have to spend real money to progress through its levels.
