Have you got an idea for a game, but don’t know where to begin? Did you know that everything you need to get started is just a few mouse clicks away? This talk will equip you with the tools you need to start bringing your ideas to life, regardless of who you are and what your background is. The ability to code or draw is not required to make your game idea a reality.

Whether you want a career in the games industry, to create games to showcase your other design skills, or start a new hobby, you will leave with an insight into: the design processes used in game studios; how to generate ideas and create prototypes; and how to use feedback to improve your designs.
