Learn the basics of Construct 2 by visual coding your own dress-up doll game! A hands-on, beginner-friendly workshop where we’ll be making this Cat Dress-Up Game. In two hours, learn how to:
- Handle art assets in the Construct 2 interface (including dealing with animation frames!),
- Use global and instance variables to lock your drag-and-dropped clothing into place,
- Implement sound and a little bit of “juice” to your interactive doll,
- Add a screencapping function for your players to share their outfit coordinates!
Open to everyone of all ages, backgrounds, genders, and identities.
Before coming, please prepare:
- Install Construct 2 (Windows only)
- Download the art and sound assets. If you would like to bring your own unique art and sound, we also very much encourage that!
