Build a Game in a Day

with the National Videogame Museum

We have all played videogames, but what about making them? How much do we know about how different aspects of a game get created, and how these affect our experience of gameplay?

Join us for a day of creating videogames, where you will learn about games and techniques and have the chance to build your very own game using simple graphics. No previous experience necessary.

Please note: The content of this workshop has changed slightly due to artist illness. Instead of Earcandy, participants will have the opportunity to Build a Game in a Day, which includes creating videogames music as well as other aspects of the field.

Suitable for ages 8-14
