Updates from an IrishGameDev in Malta

Hey y’all,

It’s been far too long since I posted anything up in this joint. Since I last spent some time writing on this page I’ve moved to Malta and started working for a financial institution managing insurance claims. Not exactly exciting work, but it puts the food on the table. The move to Malta has been exciting in other ways. For those not in the know Malta is a stunningly beautiful tiny island slap bang in the middle of the Mediterranean – right below Italy and just above Africa.

As a lot of my free time has been eaten up by work I have not had much time to work on any of my solo projects. In the last few weeks, that has changed. I’ve actually built a little demo in RPG maker of a short art-game I’m building called “I am You”.

Hi Guys,

Paddy Murphy here – Co-Founder of Open Emotion Studios and Team Custard Pug, to rant a bit… well… A lot, about games, gaming and the games industry in general. On this blog you will find info on me, myself and I, as well as details about upcoming projects I’m involved in, past projects I’ve worked on and my disgustingly strong views on videogames and game culture. As a game designer, I have an area on the site geared towards Game Design and how to get the most from titles your working on, in any genre.

So basically, please take the time to subscribe and pop by every so often to chat, read the blog or get involved in some way or another. I welcome your comments and encourage you to challenge and disagree with me, if you feel that what I’m saying is inaccurate.

Heres to #IrishGameDev 🙂
