Ever wanted to make a video game? Think you have the chops?

On Friday, April 26, Kitchener City Hall Rotunda will host the first annual Games Institute game design workshop and tournament, “Make a Game or DIY Trying.” With no programming experience necessary, attendees will be treated to a full day specifically devoted to game design and entering the video game industry.

The morning will feature game design workshops and panels led by video game industry professionals. Confirmed panelists will include:

The afternoon will be spent in groups, working on the perfect game design proposal, to be judged by the panelists at the end of the day. The top three proposals will win a prize!
