Embrace your inner nerd and build an App!
Join us for this special event to learn how to build 2D Games using Game Maker for Windows 8.
Game Maker is an exciting new application that helps you create game applications without coding experience.
It’s cross platform but you MUST have Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012 installed to build apps for Windows 8 and submit them to the Windows Store.
