Aura McMenamin. recently wrote an article for the Dublin inquirer and chatted to game workers.
Listening to testimonies of video games workers, something clicked for Ellen Cunningham.
“My eyes were opened by hearing something I already knew,” she says, on Monday over coffee.
It was March and Cunningham was at the Game Developers Conference 2019 in San Francisco, at a round-table discussion on unionisation, she says.
“It was really emotional,” says Cunningham, a writer, designer and artist working for an indie video game company in Blanchardstown. “A lot of people were angry, some of them were crying.”
