Open Emotion Studios (http://www.openemotionstudios.com/) is a video-game development company, operating out of Limerick, Ireland since late 2009. The company was founded by 3 friends, Patrick Murphy, Mike Naughton and Colm English, whose goal was to produce the games they themselves would like to see on the market. From the beginning of
2010 they have switched focus solely towards the console gaming market with games like Mad Blocker Alpha and Ninjamurai appearing on Sony Platforms. The company grew quickly, partly due to the success of the Studios first flash game, Mad Blocker which was a surprise success garnering over 2 million plays worldwide in its first month on general release.
