The Northern School of Design Festival Nov 11 th 09

The Games Design Festival Workshop
Shows how games are put together and helps visiting students to get a feel for how the games industry works. What kind of job opportunities are there? The answer to these and many other questions are explored in this session.
This workshop gives an exciting chance to take part in evolving a game idea. It seeks to dispel some of the myths that have built up around the games industry and provide the audience with an informed view of this increasingly popular arena.
The practical workshop is suitable for all of those interested in designing games and focuses on the relationship between game mechanics and developing actual game-play. Participants are given the opportunity to create some game-play plans of their own and receive feedback as to how to better initiate their ideas.
