Starting off the new academic year with a bang Open Emotion Studios, in association with the IGDA Ireland chapter, are delighted to present the “National Sham Jam 2011” – a huge games jam in the Open Emotion Studios in Limerick city running from 12 A.M on the 10th of September to 12 A.M on the 12th.

The National Sham Jam is about creating immersive and fun titles in a brief 48 Hour time period for the awesome Winnitron cabinet which has been created by Kieran Murray and Ray Quinn. The cabinet houses titles by Open Emotion Studios and Terry Cavanagh and can now contain titles by… You!

You can keep track of the event here on Game, on Open Emotions Twitter and of course over on the Open Emotion Studios webpage.
