GameMaker Workshop

Event dates

Tue 29 May 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Wed 30 May 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Let’s make some games! 👾 This year we’re pleased to be running some GameMaker taster sessions at the Festival; join game developers Shaun Spalding & Tommy Thompson and help create a masterpiece, in an hour! 🕹

In the GameMaker taster sessions, Shaun & Tommy will guide you through the process of building a game in GameMaker – with the audience making the decisions! Afterwards, we’ll be posting the source code for the game online, along with a version you can send to your friends. We’ve seen games about Ninja Bananas, Class Chickens & even evil clones of teachers so far – We can’t wait to see what you come up with! 💡

This workshop is perfect for (but not limited to) 7-12 year olds – tickets are free and available at the link below. Do you know any keen gamers/budding game designers you think would love this workshop? Be sure to let them know!

Tuesday 29 May workshop is fully booked. Limited spaces are available for Wednesday 30 May.
