Join Game Devs around the world as they gather for 48 hours of game developing, pizza and a bit of craic. Running in the Mill Enterprise Hub in Drogheda for the first time, teams and individuals are encouraged to come along and make games according to a common theme which remains a very well kept secret until 5pm on Friday 25th!
