Ever wanted to make an interactive toy or game but not known how? In this workshop series starting October and ending in an exhibition of student projects at the V&A Late, we will teach you everything you need to get off the ground in the world of basic game design.
What You’ll Learn
Developed for creative people, we will assume no prior knowledge in programming or game design. By the end of the six workshops you’ll have used the Unity game engine to create your own working prototype game which you will then be able to play, using a game controller created in Arduino.
Who Are Code Liberation?
Code Liberation catalyzes the creation of digital games and creative technologies by women, nonbinary, femme and girl-identifying people to diversify STEAM fields. Founded in 2013, we’ve reached around 2,500 women and are now starting a UK chapter. Join us!
These workshops are open to women, nonbinary, femme, and girl-identifying people from all walks of life.
We can provide all the kit you need including laptops and electronics, but if you would rather use your own computer then you are free to bring it in.
