What will happen in your session?

How do you make a new game? You hack an existing game with new stories and/or new rules.

Learn, design, transform, playtest, and try out other people's hacks of rock-paper-scissors.

No prior game design or coding knowledge required.

What is the goal or outcome of your session?

This will be your PARTY BAG:

  • Learn how to code a simple videogame with Thimble
  • Develop a (video)game prototype
  • Foster a critical thinking approach to “entertainment commodities” (aka games)
  • Practice teamwork in a playfully structured activity
  • Learn a method that can be applied to game design and user experience design in general (using constraints to channel your creative response)

If your session requires additional materials or electronic equipment, please outline your needs.

Projector for coding demo, markers and post-its for ideation

Time needed

90 mins

@matteomenapace, are there other platforms outside Thimble that might work for this session or be options for it, as well?

Hi @chadsansing yes, I'm planning to use p5.js so any online web editor could work. Why not Thimble though, if I may ask?

Thimble would totally work for sure; just wondering if something like Glitch is the "new hotness"/drawing a larger audience right now.

Thank you @chadsansing, I like Glitch :) particularly the real-time collaboration built into the editor. Thimble still rocks as a beginner-friendly tool though, so I will keep both as options.

Could we change the first point in the goal/outcome?
from
Learn how to code a simple videogame with Thimble
to
Learn how to code a simple videogame, and publish it straight to the web
(removing specific reference to Thimble, so that we can keep the options open for alternative tools like Glitch, as suggested by @chadsansing)
