NYC Haunts at Seward Park - Ghost and Found Debuts! 

After many long hours and hard work, the Lower East Side NYC Haunts game Ghost and Found was completed and presented to youth at the Seward Park brand of the New York Public Library. Global Kids Leaders Cindy and Queena led the group on an interactive tour through the neighborhood using their game as a way to educate about the past. The girls engaged the students in conversations about the importance of a safe working environment and encouraged everyone to sign the petition they created to request that the Garment Industry discontinues their use of sweatshops.

We will be updating soon with video footage from the day, for now check out some photos from the day!

This past Saturday March 10th at the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library Global Kids led a day long game design workshop for youth. The workshop covered main topics of game design such as characters, narrative, social issues, prototyping and iteration. As a closing activity, the participants created a poster to pitch a new game based on a popular board game they modified to deal with social issues such as violence and bullying.

They also worked with Gamestar Mechanic a gaming platform specifically created to learn about game design, and they created their first game using the tools they learned during the workshop.
