Just over two years ago, GameCraft sloshed it’s way free of the primordial game development ooze and smote the world, or at least parts of Dublin, with it’s mighty presence! In celebration of that gooey and historic event, we’re returning to the source (DIT) for a (slightly belated) two year anniversary GameCraft. On the 17th of May 2014, DIT will be hosting three special GameCraft events
We hope you’ll be able to join us there to celebrate in true, sleep deprived, game developer fashion.
