About the Workshop
The workshop goes for two days, and will cover an introduction to the game programming environments, as well as game design and art making.
The digital games we will be creating are text adventures. Players explore a story through text, and choose where to go next by selecting options or typing in actions.
We will be exploring a variety of programming environment and languages, including Squiffy, Inform 7, and Twine. A background in coding is not required.
