Happy 10th Birthday! Amazing milestone, here's to 10 years more and the rest.   ;D

Ooh, nice :) Our lack of physical premises has always stopped us doing much on the merchandising line!

We should have our first prototypes ready in the next month or so and then will be running some contests and giveaways to get launched.  ;D

Are you actually getting the things made in NI? Or outsourcing the direct manufacture? :)

All getting made in Northern Ireland. All in house.  :D

Hi everyone! We are about to launch our very own premium t-shirt range which we will be printing in house. We would like to invite any indie devs who want to see their designs on t-shirt form to contact us. Due to bringing the operation in house we can offer you a 15% commission on every t-shirt sold using your design. The commission is based on the sell price.

As it's our brand we take care of everything all you have to do is promote and cash in your commission payments. You can also order bulk packages for promotions, competitions or events that can be shipped to you directly.

Oh hello! Must welcome you here.  ::)

Just reading a post on your site now. :)

Looks really nice. I like the graphics style and interface. It seems very responsive and not bogged down by too much information. Popping over to your twitter page now to see more.  :gandalfgrey:

I would imagine you have a few ideas lol!

More than just reviews. It can be think pieces, news etc. As long as it all relates to the indie gaming community. Can even be coverage of new gaming computers etc.

I would love for you to be able to contribute, even if its sporadic.  :P
