This Tuesday we’ve got the awesome fellows of Open Emotion Studios coming down to 091 Labs to have a chat with us!
Founders Paddy Murphy (Chief Elephant Optimiser) and Colm English (Lead Programmer) are driving down to Galway especially for us on Open Night this Tuesday, 24th January from 7pm and will be hanging around for a while to answer your questions.
Open Emotions Studios was founded by three friends in early 2010 and, as of this month, is the largest Indie Game Dev Studio in Ireland with offices in Dublin and Limerick. They make games for PS3, PSP, Xbox Live, iOS, Android, Flash and more. Their games and developers have also won a bunch of awards!
Open Night starts on Tuesday at 7pm. Paddy and Colm will give a short talk and presentation from 7.15, explaining a bit about themselves and what they do and what cool new stuff is happening. They’ll stick around for a while to answer any questions you might have and are then hopping in their car for the long drive back home!
Our Unity drop-in nights will be taking a break over the Christmas period while this humble blogger grits his teeth and prepares to dive into the capitalist soul-draining maelstrom that is modern Christmas cheer. Wish me luck…
We’ll be announcing our next drop-in night in the New Year. In the mean time, have a merry and relatively stress-free Christmas and why not pop along to our fantastic 091 Labs Xmas Get-Together? We’ll be meeting up in the space (47 Eyre Square, above Kennedys Pub, for those not in the know) from 7pm on Friday the 16th of December for food, games and general festive hackery. Hope to see you there!
While Mark works on the final content of his unity3d Game Development Workshops, 091 Labs will be running some Unity3d drop-in work-groups. Tomorrow evening from 6pm participants can show-off/work on their own game projects, follow a Unity3d tutorial, or share examples of particularly well-made/unusual games built using the engine (for example, Parallax or the winners of the Kongregate Unity Game Contest).
