This is the first week of our video game design workshop! For the next six weeks, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4pm to 6pm, we’ll be working on learning what makes a good game and then exploring the technical tool-sets. The goal of the workshop is for young people to learn the skills involved in creating and designing an original video game and actually generating their own games.
In order to find out what makes a good game, we played Dominion, an epic deck-building game similar to Magic, The Gathering, but much more dynamic and interesting. Next week we’ll be playing some more board games, figuring out how they work and beginning to create our own games.If you’ve ever been interested in designing your own video game, stop by the Basement on a Tuesday or Thursday!
