General description

Get ready to design and develop a Game in 9 days!

Disclaimer: No coding knowledge required.

We will be taking you through a Design Sprint, a state of the art creative process pioneered by Google Ventures and applying it to the particular case of Game Design. You will not be alone on this journey: you will be working in teams, with students from different backgrounds that will bring their own and unique perspectives and, together, create that innovative and intense Game Experience. Short daily lectures will discuss the importance of fundamental concepts of Game Design that will challenge you to look at Games under a different perspective and help you create your own voice in this medium. Last, but not least, you will learn to use technology accessible to everyone to prototype and validate your ideas, create a playable proof of concept, and receive expert feedback from the local Game Industry.

While developing the design for your game in the beautiful city of Lisbon, you will be buffed by our wonderful Mediterranean climate and able to get your stamina back with our traditional dishes and stunning beaches -- all with the BEST spirit! These will be two weeks to remember that may well change your life: you will learn valuable skills to any creative process and, who knows, you may well end up taking the team with you and the idea to market!
