Playable Paper Prototyping
This workshop will see you create a card, paper or cardboard prototype of a game to play with your buddies. We’ll take you from idea, to prototyping, to testing a game for 2-3 players. The design challenge is to make a short game (5-20mins) you can have fun playing with 2-3 mates. Come along by yourself, or with friends, and with an idea or no idea! Workshop length is 3hrs, and is suitable for adults and children over 12 years.
This workshop features pens, paper and some shouting – no screens or actual robots required. Facilitated by Disparity Games, developers of Ninja Pizza Girl. Suitable for all ages.
