On Monday 9/30, Game-U traveled over to Ohio State’s campus to hold a workshop at one of the most popular events in Columbus for Women in tech: Witcon! For our lab, our instructors Emelia and Tyler talked to the 52 lab attendees about the game design industry, how to get involved, and what Game-U can do to help get you there. Emelia even had the opportunity to talk about her own experience as a woman in the game design industry.
Once the short talk was over, we dove right into making a game using Construct 2 and Piskel! Emelia ran through how to make pixel art while Tyler went over the ins and outs of putting together a quick platform game in Construct 2! By the end of the hour the whole group had their very own games to share. We had a blast attending Witcon and look forward to more ways Game-U can share the possibilities of a career in the game industry with women around the world.
