Workshop
Title: Limited Game Design
During the last few years, game jams and similar events have shown how time and topic constraints are a great context in which simple but strong ideas can evolve. In the Limited Game Design workshop we explore this development style to find new possibilities of such limits and constraints to improve our game design and prototyping process.

Workshop
Title: Start making mobile games!
Together we'll create a simple 2D mobile game. We'll animate a character in Spine animation tool, and then code the game in Corona SDK, including a cool parallax scrolling backgrounds technique and cross-platform goodness. All the graphics will be prepared for you, and all you need is a laptop, free tools available and an interest in game making!
