In this workshop with game designer and co-founder of 3-Fold Games Claire Morwood (Biome Collective), we will be introduced to the basics of game design, the history of small digital tools, and set off on making your own Bitsy game!

Suitable for anyone interested in creative technology, completely new to game design, and experienced game designers with an interest in learning new tools.

During the day, Tinderbox is also running a Bitsy One-Day Game Jam! This is open to anyone (whether you attend the workshop or not) to join and share your games. 

For ages 16+.

This workshop is held via a Zoom Call and spaces are limited – please register to attend

About Bitsy:
Bitsy is a free-to-use online/browser-based game-making tool created by Adam Le Doux, that allows you to make small games & interactive pieces without programming. You don’t need to download anything to run Bitsy – you’ll just need to have this page open during the workshop to work on your own game:
https://ledoux.itch.io/bitsy

You will need:
A computer or laptop
Access to internet
