Ever wanted to design your own creepy computer game?

This Halloween we will have the ultimate workshop for gruesome geeks and devilish designers, with our Spooky Computer Game Design (Pixel Art) workshop.

This two hour session will show your creative creatures how to design their own fully functional 2D platform game. We show how to make the most of pixel art as they make their own animated pixel characters, from blocky beasts to square skeletons.

All aspects of design are covered, from lethal level design to spooky background art, and much more. 

(Finished games are published online, the Halloween theme is optional.)
