Learn how to create games in Bitsy, a free, easy to use game creator, which you can download or use in your web browser.

In the first half of the workshop, we’ll run you through the basics of Bitsy – no coding or experience needed. In the second half, you’ll be given free rein to start creating your own pixel game – we can’t wait to see what fun, spooky, weird, colourful stories and worlds you create!

NOTE: If you want to create a Bitsy game during the workshop, please bring a laptop.
