Keeping It Strange: Experimental Game Design Tools

In-person at InterAccess - Register Here!

This beginner's workshop will delve into a buffet of tiny experimental programs that require little to no coding experience, such as Flickgame, Sok Worlds, and Bitsy. Participants will design small, zine-like games that can be shared with others, develop an appreciation for the indie "art tool" scene, and learn to embrace happy accidents in the game-making process.
