What is the Follow Along?
Make a video game alongside the Pixelles Game Incubator IV from the comfort of your home!
After each week’s session, we’ll be posting a summary and the homework assignment. You will get a reminder email every week, linking you to plenty of resources, the slides from our mentors, and a suggestion of how to progress in the work timeline. Follow along at home and make a game on your own time without the stress of our deadlines, or needing to be present in Montreal. You’ll gain access to any community “work-on-our-game” get togethers and, of course, our support! Feel free to e-mail, tweet, or Facebook at any time to get feedback on your game.
You will also have the option to sign up for a Pixelles alumna to help motivate you via email. They will check in with you from time to time, keep track of your individual progress, and keep you up-to-date with community events. They will act as your go-to officer if you ever need a dedicated helping hand to point you in the right direction!

Meetups / Group Work Sessions
Follow-Along participants are invited to our extra work sessions. There, you can get help and support other first-time game-makers! Exploring your ideas or even talking about bugs with other people can be extremely helpful, since they may already have encountered and solved that same problem you’re experiencing. See you there!
When: Saturdays from Jan 16th to Feb 20th, inclusive
Time: 2pm to 5pm (except for Jan 23rd, 11am to 2pm, to make time for Cookies & Cocoa!)
Where: Gameplay Space, 1435 Rue St Alexandre (Metro Place-des-Arts)
