Advanced Game Development Workshop

In this advanced level workshop we will cover more detailed aspects of game designprogramming and what frameworks to use. This workshop is designed for people who have previous programming experience and are currently working on game or looking for feedback and help on an existing game.

Each month we will pick a new framework to learn with a focus on making a new game each month. This workshop will be treated more as a jam session where you can bring your own work, share it with others and program in a creative, collaborative environment. Our goal is to release a new game each month for

Each workshop will have a 1 hour lecture or discussion followed by 2 hours of hands on time where you are free to work on your own game and get help on anything you are having issues with.

Month Schedule:

First week - Monthly Framework Introduction. Each month we will talk about a new framework. To get started we will alternate between ImpactJS (HTML5) and GameMaker.

Second Week - Show and tell where we highlight some of the work we are doing

Third Week - Polish and bug fixing so we can focus on any issues you may be having with your game before launch.

Fourth Week - Release your game. We will go over what you need to release your game.
