I was invited to give a workshop at the Major Game Design and Development at Hanze Hogeschool in Groningen. 16 international students working together in teams to develop serious games for children in Africa, Butterfly works is involved as stakeholder (they developed and implemented a water awarnes game GetH2o in several countries in Africa). The students used the canvas and developed three game concepts within 10 minutes, worked on the magic game circle and had many great questions about balancing the understanding of the definition of game and/or play. Balancing challenge and accessibility in design.
(half way my presentation a student asked: “is this about the magic circle?” I could not be more happy) I love doing workshops!
