Claire Morley & Mark Wonnacott: Building Small Adventures with Bitsy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
This is one of the 3 game-making workshops that will be running alongside the Berlin Mini  Game Jam. We recommend joining at 12:00 for the game jam info speech and theme voting, and to meet the other participants. Once the jam kicks off at 13:00, those who want to take part to the workshop will move to a different space. Once the workshop is over, you're welcome to go back to the game jam.

Please note that spots for the workshop will be assigned on a first-come first-served basis.

In this workshop we will introduce the free web-based tool Bitsy, give a brief tour through it, and then be on hand to help out as you experiment with using it. Bitsy is great for making small narrative adventures with a tile-based pixel-art aesthetic, and no knowledge of coding required. It's designed to accessible for any skill level within game development, including absolute beginners, and for making a short game within a few hours - perfect for a game jam!

We suggest you check out this handout if you want to already start learning about it.

Intended audience: People with any level of skill in game development (beginners included!) who want to try out a new tool for making games.

Requirements: None.

Tools participants should bring
: Just a laptop.
