Let's make a computer game! Using the accessible and fun platform PICO-8 we'll work together to learn how to make a simple game, including everything from code to pixel art graphics and chippy sounds. The workshop holder has lots of experience from the platform and will help and coach participants to get the most of the workshop. Things we will cover: - the basic game loop - moving entities - animation - collision detection - making and playing sounds We'll also look at some existing games that showcase what is possible with the platform. After the workshop participants will have a base for a game which they easily can keep working on by themselves if they desire. PICO-8 uses Lua which is an easy programming language to get started with, but given the time limit on the workshop, basic programming knowledge is preferred. PICO-8 is can be purchased and downloaded, but there is also an educational version available online that is can be used for the workshop.
