Event Details

Build your own Windows Store Game (in one   sitting).

Friday, 10/18

         

You got game? I bet you do, so build a game. No, really!  You can do it and it’s worth it. Martin Schray from Microsoft has built several games with several thousand downloads and he doesn’t have game design or previous game development experience.

Games don’t have to be complicated or complex like Madden 25 or Halo 4 to be fun and popular. In any app marketplace games are some of the most popular (and profitable) downloads. Don’t think you can create good games? Guess again.   You don’t need mad design skills, art skills or be game developer to build a popular or engaging game. Martin will teach you to build your first game, your resume, your skills and your brand by building your game for the Windows Store.

In a few short hours you’ll take a starter game and craft your own version of it and get it into the Windows Store.

 

If you don't have an game idea yet, that is fine come to the event, learn how to build an game and let inspiration strike (it always does).Bring your own Windows 8 machine with Visual Studio 2012 and install Construct 2 (https://www.scirra.com/construct2/free-edition).  If you don't have Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012 you can get them here:
