Prototyping emotional game design with Bitsy: creative process & practice

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

Wonder how to tell better stories through your games that also evoke some sort of emotion in the players?

Through this workshop we are going to make an emotional experience on Bitsy. We will start knowing about how the process could work (everyone has their own), followed by ideation time and the making of our experience using the engine Bitsy. By the end of the workshop, we will put together our ideas and show the things we've been able to make.

Goal: to start knowing the tools for making emotional experiences. If participants can't finish their game during the workshop, that's completely fine. They can do so at home later on!

This workshop is recommended for anybody, even people that have never made a game before.

Be sure to bring your own laptop to follow this workshop. But you are also very welcome without your laptop. This was you can explore the possibility of doing game design with paper or through storyboarding.

Online registration is *not* required to attend this workshop. Spots will be assigned on a first-come first-served basis, so make sure to be at the workshop location at least 15 minutes before the starting time.

The workshop room is accessible via stairs and a stairs elevator. If you need any assistance write to us at contact@a-maze.net
