When: Monday, November 2nd, 2015 from 7-9pm
Where: Notman House (51 Sherbrooke Ouest)
Language: english
Cost: free

In this workshop participants will explore the possibilities of interactive fiction by writing multi-linear stories and personal choose-your-own-adventure videogames in Twine, software for creating hypertext-based videogames. Twine has been an influential tool in creating radical, personal, and accessible games.

Come learn the program and experiment with writing your own interactive stories, poetry, and adventures. By the end of the workshop, you will have a game hosted online and ready to play!

This workshop is open to everyone of all genders, ages, and experiences. Kids are welcome to participate but should be supervised by their parental guardian.

GAMERella was conceived at TAG Lab with the goal of creating a jam in a safe and inspiring environment. Everyone experiments, learns and shares skills with others. It is a place to improve a craft, try out risky and unconventional game design ideas, meet other developers, and above all, have fun.

GAMERella invites all women, gender-non conforming folks and PoC, as well as anyone who support minorities in the industry participate November 14-15 in a weekend of fun game-making.
