iglab Bristols interesting games lab are offering a Street Games Design Workshop on the 17th of July. The Workshop takes place at the Milk Bar in St Nicholas Market, right in the middle of the oldest part of Bristol with it's incredibly diverse street-scape. There are Georgian Streets, 70s mult-storey car-parks, fragments of the medieval castle, the usual dodgy 80s office blocks and, to one side, Bristol's harbour.
How will it work?
We make full use of this rich environment. With a workshop format based on the firm conviction that game design means playing the game alot - you'll be out in the crowds of the Saturday market, weaving and hiding, hollering and sneaking. We build small teams to work to a series of briefs in super-fast design and testing cycles - to design a game, for instance, about betrayal using umbrellas on a footbridge. We all play all the games, feedback, then go again in other teams on another ideas.
