Richard Barnwell is the founder and CEO of DIGIT Game Studio. Founded in 2012, DIGIT is the largest game development studio in Ireland: it has already developed Kings of the Realm, which was the biggest game launch in the history of the Irish gaming industry. DIGIT are now scaling up their studio to produce an iconic new title, and we'll be using the opportunity to chat with Richard and get an insight into the fascinating world of video game development.
Prior to founding DIGIT, Richard was CEO at Jolt Online Gaming (part of the GameStop network), and previous to that was a member of the senior management team at Jagex (a leading developer of MMO titles, including RuneScape). Richard is currently a Board Member of Games Ireland, a not-for-profit organisation working to support, promote and drive sustainable growth for the games industry in Ireland.
