    • Let the world play: Go live and publish your awesome game.

Who can get involved?

This workshop is designed to teach families (one adult & one young person) the basics of designing your own retro video game. As a guide, we suggest an age of 6+ for the young person. Younger children may take part but they might need a bit of extra support from their accompanying parent/guardian throughout the session.

**Tickets for this event admit one child and one parent/guardian only. Every child must be accompanied by an adult.**


Equipment needed:

All equipment will be provided on the day, you just need to bring yourself and some creativity.
