Game Dev Workshops were a Success

Trevor teaching the Game Art Workshop

In association with the Galway Game Jam, we ran a three-day crash course in Game Development. The three days were spread out across three weeks, taking place in BOI's Workbench on Saturdays and covered art for games, Sound Design for games and finally, scripting using Unity 3D. The concept behind these workshops was to give absolute beginners an insight into the vast field of Gamedev and ultimately, to give them the skills necessary to take part in this month’s Galway Game Jam which takes place this Saturday, Aug. 27th in ThePorterShed.

Huge thanks to everyone who attended, it was awesome to be able to share our knowledge with you all.
