Event description

Description

Do you play board games? Have you ever wanted to make one and wondered where to start? In this workshop, participants will study the formal foundations of game/ system/ interactive play design (economies, flow states, feedback loops). They will create and iterate on two non-digital games of different genres and learn how to integrate their own artistic practices and ideas into a quickly growing medium.

Allison Cole - bio

I'm an artist and game designer from Montreal with an MFA in Interactive Digital Media from New York University. I got my start making digital games with Tweed Couch Games, but have settled into my true love: playful immersive theatre. Anytime I can rig an Arduino to surprise you, I will. I am currently working at on Anthology of Intimacy, a series of Live Action Roleplays about intimacy created through collaborative design. I teach Game Design at Sheridan College.
