Come and learn about computer games
The Bentall Centre have got together with Kingston School of Art until the end of May to create a series of workshops, exhibitions, live art, performance and much more. All this will take over this Centre, and all events are completely FREE and open to all ages.
This will be held at The Lab, First Floor, The Bentall Centre, Wood Street, Kingston upon Thames. It will be on in multiple dates, which you can pick when you book at the link above.
The skills needed to create a computer game cover art to design to programming. Small games like those for mobiles do not always need teams of people and high budgets. In this hands-on "build a game workshop", you will learn how to make a game using the commercial game engine Unity. You will also have the chance to play games that students have already made, and find out first-hand how they made them.
Unity is the same software used to create games such as The Room, Crossy Road and Monument Valley 2. You do not need to have any experience in programming. It would be helpful if you had some general skills in using PCs, managing files, folders and applications. The teachers at this event will be academics and students from Kingston University.
Bring along a USB key so that you can copy and take your game away with you. You will also be able to see the games that have been created by the students in the 24 hour KSA GameJam!
