Founder & Editor

Cake’n Games

  • I founded in February 2014 as a gateway for Irish gamers to provide opinions on current gaming releases and upcoming features. Cake currently has a strong team of contributors and writers and is growing bigger by the week. In conjunction with my role as founder of the site I am currently in negotiations to forge links with major Irish gaming studios thereby allowing Cakengames prior knowledge of upcoming releases and exclusives. In the future I plan to have Cake become an entertaining, interesting, fun and most of all honest outlet for the gaming community and industry, not just in Ireland but globally. With our core readership now based in the United States, we have been tailoring articles and information to both our national and U.S. readers.
