Designing Games For Change Session 2: Creating a Prototype with the Unity Game Engine
7 October @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
This project is an opportunity for both HKU students and staff to experiment with designing a game experience to drive positive change. Your game can address sustainability issues such as climate change and environmental protection, social justice and discrimination, ethics and citizenship, or teach skills for human flourishing.
Our partners, Press Start Academy, will mentor and guide you through learning the principles of game design, ideation, prototyping, and experience design. You will also learn how to use Generative A.I. applications in the design of your games.
Participants can choose to attend just the two workshops or go all-the-way by designing your game and submitting it for international competition at the Games for Change conference. Press Start Academy may also extend an offer to commercialise and publish your games.
