Paper Prototyping Workshop
June 1, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Interactive workshop covering Paper Prototyping. Learn what they are, when to use them, make one of your own, and even playtest them live!
About this event
Making a digital prototype of your game is one of the best ways to test if it’s actually a fun concept, but it can take so much time! That’s why the pros sometimes use a magical concept called Paper Prototyping instead.
In a Paper Prototype you don’t touch a single line of code or an IDE. Instead you get crafty! Slap together some pieces of paper and colored cubes and find somebody to try playing your game.
In this two hour interactive workshop hosted byWork With Indies and taught by the Indie Game Academy, we’ll teach you the ins and outs of a good paper prototype.
Whether you’re a programmer looking to explore a concept or new to game design entirely, this workshop is right for you!
We will cover:
• What a Paper Prototype actually is
• The strengths and weaknesses of using them
• How to effectively put one together
• How to run a playtest using one
Our schedule will work as follows:
• 6:30pm-6:40pm EST: Introduction and Welcome

We hope to see you all soon!
