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.

I’ve just come across the Create groups and wondered if there were any vacancies on this course as I would love to attend. I have an incredibly creative background and I would be interested in generating new ideas and meeting new people.

Many thanks,
