InGAME: Innovation for Games

Website: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/o/ingame-innovation-for-games-24791263517

Everyone is welcome to a fun and accessible, COVID – proof interactive workshop that introduces the free, online game-making tool, Bitsy.

Bitsy is an accessible tool that enables you to make small pixel-art adventure/narrative games in a short amount of time, with no coding knowledge required. We will take a look at the history of tiny games and the community around them today, go through an introduction to using Bitsy, and then have time to begin making a Bitsy game of your own.
No prior experience or knowledge necessary.
