In 2017, she was awarded the Development Legend award at the Develop conference in the UK. In 2015, she won the coveted Ambassador’s Award at the Game Developers Choice Awards. In 2014, she received a Fulbright award to study Ireland’s game industry, academic and government policies. In 2013, she was named one of the top 10 game developers by and Develop magazine listed her among the 25 people who changed games in 2013. Romero co-owns Romero Games.

We'll be open late after the talk for people to hang out and play some of the games that Brenda has worked on over the years.
