Niamh Fitzgerald graduated last year from the Media Design School in Auckland, New Zealand with a Bachelor of Creative Design.
During 2017, Niamh helped organised NZGDC17 including a Women and Non-Binary brunch and continued her work with NZGDC in 2018 by organising a “We’re in Games Social” for Women, Non-Binary, and LBGTQIA+ developers.
She created indie studio Little Lost Fox, which is working on it’s debut mobile game “Valleys Between”, which has already been recognised and won several awards including Overall Outstanding, Excellent in Design, Audience Choice and the Student Award at Play by Play 2017.
Niamh joined the committee for Play by Play in 2018 and has organised workshops for Play by Play. She has also been on the board of the NZ Game Developers Association for the past two years, where she has organised many association events such as public showcases at Armageddon and PAX Australia.
Niamh said to MCV Pacific, “It’s an absolute honour to be nominated alongside such an amazing group of talented and influential women on this years’ Women in Games list. I wouldn’t be where I am today without many of the women on this list, and I hope I can return their support and help other women in the industry.”
