Game Jam Survival Workshop
July 22 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Get yourself prepared for your next gamejam in this one-day workshop. (And also get some programming skills!)
The workshop is heavily focused on the process of creating a game. Mistakes are good – make them here!
I will be setting out some limitations to help confine the scope of your game as well as providing some support where necessary. Participants will be applying themselves to the various tasks of designing and developing a (tiny) game solo.
Some thing’s we’ll touch on over the course of the day:
* Programming (A practical introduction),
* Game design considerations,
* Game engines,
* Useful collaboration tools,
* Using your existing skills to your advantage,
* Free online resources for 2d & 3d art and audio,
* Time management,
* Troubleshooting / debugging,
* Communication with your team.
The workshop is offered over 3 Saturdays. This is the third workshop! Each workshop everyone will attempt to make a new game. Each attempt will bring new problems and learning opportunities. The result will be some good learning about the process and about where your strengths and weaknesses are within that process so that you can further work to improve.
