Never Too Old To Play
Are you interested in game design that focuses on making games for people of all ages?
If so, you are invited to attend a two-day workshop with video game designer and gerontoludics researcher Dr. Bob De Schutter. Using collaborative design strategies, participants will have the chance to conceptualize and create prototypes for video games that hold appeal for all ages. These design strategies will be informed by Dr. De Schutter’s research and design practice, which challenges the notion that younger generations are the only people interested in video game play.
The two-day workshop will begin with a discussion of Dr. De Schutter’s empirical and theoretical work on games and ageing. Dr. De Schutter will also highlight some of the challenges of gerontulidic game design and make design recommendations. Attendees will spend the remainder of the workshop conceptualizing and applying the creative techniques of game design.
This workshop is free and all ages are welcome.
No prior game design experience or academic knowledge is required.
