A big thank you to everyone who made it out to the info session! We loved meeting you and we love your enthusiasm! Definitely looking forward to your game-making energy in January!
If you couldn’t make it out to the info session you can still view the presentation to see what you might’ve missed! It summarizes the whole program, our expectations, your potential game, tools, our Follow Along program, and what games women from the previous workshop made!
Here are a few questions that came up during the info session:
Q: Are we working in teams?
No, each of the 10 participants make their own individual game. If you’re in the Follow Along, however, feel free to team up with your friends or anyone you might know!
Q: Are you looking for a certain kind of applicant
We’re looking for any women (cis/trans) who are enthusiastic about making games, never had the chance to make a game, and/or definitely committed to seeing the workshop through. Each cohort has a variety of participants from different skill areas, backgrounds, life experiences, ages, & game-making goals.
Q: Can I make changes to my application
Yes! E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, right away. We’ll send you a copy of your application to which you can make any number of changes to. From their either email us back or resubmit your application to the form (we’ll delete your old one).
Q: What night of the week will it be?
The sessions will occur one night sometime during the weekdays. Our space gives us a little flexibility so we can find a day that fits well with the group. Follow Along and extra game-making sessions will happen on a weekend afternoon, most likely a Sunday.
If you have any more questions don’t hesitate to ask us anything via twitter, facebook, or e-mail (email@example.com | firstname.lastname@example.org).
