BGS Announces 2018 Fall Workshop Series and Student Sponsorships

A series of events that will teach students with no prior knowledge the essentials of video game development.


BUFFALO, NY, August 6th - Buffalo Game Space is proud to announce their third annual Fall Game Workshop Series. BGS is offering a number of students the opportunity to attend this series of workshops covering everything one needs to learn to create their own video game free of charge, as well as offering coworking and equipment access. From September 19th to December 5th BGS will be offering workshops covering every element of game creation and development, from the basics of game design to the essentials of programming, creating art and music, storytelling and more. The workshop series will conclude in a game jam the weekend of December 8th where attendees will work in teams to create a game in 48 hours using the lessons learned from the workshops.

"We’re very excited to once again provide this great opportunity for anyone interested in making their own games but might not have the means to do so on their own," says BGS President John Futscher. "We believe that this active and growing industry needs as many diverse voices as possible to bring their fresh perspectives to the field, and offering a workshop series that helps break down any barriers facing those voices is a step in the right direction."

Applications for the workshop series are open from August 6th to August 31st. The workshops will also be open to the general public at $40 per session ($24/$20/$10 for BGS Members - visit https://buffalogamespace.com/misc/membership for more information). Tickets to the workshops are available for purchase at https://buffalogamespace.bigcartel.com/.
