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.
