Through playing various indie and art games and reading related texts we explore and discuss expressive and narrative possibilities of games and play.

First meeting 22 October 10:00
Auriea & Tobias
(For beginning and advanced students.)
This will be a series of World building workshops in game engines. World building is about translating the sense of place - physical, emotional and imagined reality - into a form that can be shared, and interpreted, by a player or audience. We will explore Text-based games, Flat games, First and third-person navigation, and VR immersion.

Tuesdays 14:00 - 16:00
First meeting 22 October 14:00
Auriea & Tobias
(For students who have taken at least one game engine class before.)
What is your game going to be? What effect can your game have in the wider game culture? How should you express your idea to others if you can’t make it yet? This is the class about game ideas and presenting them well! We will have a critical look at what we want to make and why. We will organise our thoughts, discuss team building, how to plan and make a schedule, how to make an elevator pitch and more. Bring your work in progress projects for playtest and discussion to discover where to take it next. We will go deeper, as a group, into game design decision-making.

Wednesdays 10:00 - 15:00
Max participants: 12
First meeting 23 October 10:00
Beginning and advanced students will work on projects to further 3D modeling, texturing and animation skills.
