IDRH Workshop: Play and Build: 2D Character Design

"Play and Build: 2D Character Design" Thursday, March 7th 2019, 3-5pm FMS Digital Media Lab, Summerfield 418

Join PhD student in French and HASTAC Scholar Clarisse Barbier and FMS professor/Indigenous media theorist Joshua Miner for this introductory Play-and-Build workshop on video game design.

During this play-and-build workshop, participants will play 2D video games and discuss their evolution, notably how character design and sprite animation work in concert with game mechanics to generate games' embedded  and emergent narrative elements.  Participants will be instructed on basic game design tools and work in development teams on a character design project. At the end of the session, participants will showcase the work produced with their team.

While participants will have access to computers in the media lab, participants are also welcome to bring their own laptop with a photo editing software installed (preferably Adobe Creative Suite).

Seats are limited so please send an email to RSVP to Clarisse Barbier- - by Wednesday 6th, 2pm.
