- An interest in games!
- Photoshop experience will help but is not essential.
- No coding experience needed.
Extend your interest from playing games into making games! Design your own characters, enemies and environments. Create artwork, level layouts and animation. Combine all these elements together using a pre-made template into your own original game design.
We will use Photoshop, Aseprite and GameMaker to create artwork, animation and playable game levels.
- Photoshop pixel art
- Character design and animation
- Aseprite for animation
- GameMaker level design
If you have an idea for a game character, bring it along!
Please bring a pen, a pencil, drawing paper and a USB stick.
