Wired Games is an independent game development team based in the West of Ireland and united by a passion for intelligent, fun and exciting gaming experiences. Our team boasts a broad mix of skills, experience and drive. We are currently deep in the development of our first title, Universe or Nothing, an engaging cooperative multi-crew space sim game depicting the harrowing conflict between a rebuilt Earth and the human colonies who had thought themselves forgotten. You’ll be able to pick up Universe or Nothing on Steam in 2017, or via bootlegged holocube if you’re in the Centauri system.
Wired Games’ founding members, Mark, Dave and Pádraig, have known each other for many years, having united over a shared love of gaming at Mark’s PC gaming LAN centre, the original Wired Games. While that business is no more, the trio have pooled their energies and carved out the time to pursue the dream of developing their own game.

Development and Game Design (Lead)
Mark has always had an interest in games, and has been gaming long enough to remember when games came on cassette tapes and took an afternoon to load. He has indulged his passion for gaming in many ways, including opening and running the original Wired Games, a PC gaming LAN centre based in Galway, where he was known for unearthing obscure but fascinating titles and coaxing his clientèle into trying them out. Mark’s forays into making his own games began with text games in BASIC on the BBC Micro, graduating to mods (everything from Ultima Online to Call of Duty) and then into full time game development. Most recently he has worked as the lead developer on a cloud based trading card platform, Fantom, which is used by a number of major brands and currently boasts thousands of players. Despite frequent denials, rumours persist to this day that Mark sees the world in the form of a Matrix-like code rain.
