Game Development

With imagination as the only limit to your creativity, we'll show you how to become a master-maker. "Wouldn't it be cool to make a video game on my own?" - Most of us had thought about it at one point in our lives, and now is the time to realise it! This workshop will get you to develop a video game from scratch. We'll be developing our game with indie games developers' favourite tool - Game Maker. Download it HERE for free! The session will be guided and supported by the Digital Creativity Foundation Faculty.


Workshop Two: 3pm-6pm (NZST/GMT+12)

3D Modelling

This workshop has been designed to introduce students to 3D Modelling using Blender. An ideal workshop for students who are not sure about the world of 3D Design and are curious to learn about the possibilities this field offers for their futures. No previous knowledge necessary and students don’t need to bring anything with them at this stage. The session will be guided and supported by the Digital Creativity Foundation Faculty.
