What you’ll do

In this interactive workshop, work with professional game designers to create your own text-based game on iPads using the web platform Twine. You’ll have the opportunity to learn the basics of game design theory. 

By the end of the session, you’ll have created your own short game that you can access at home.

All the equipment is provided – you won’t need to bring a thing. We’ll provide snacks, too.
