Welcome to the Hostos Bitsy Bench itch.io page! 

The Hostos Bitsy Bench is a workshop being host at Hostos Community College to teach students how to use the bitsy game engine and get work out into the community. Once the workshop is done, students have until that Sunday to finish their projects and submit it to this page where we will compile them together publicly.  

Workshop details

What is Bitsy? 

Bitsy is a game-making tool that utilizes its constraints in order to inspire creativity.  On the surface a bitsy game may seem somewhat simplistic, but due to bitsy's limitations the creative choices made by the designer are more meaningful. The color palettes, the dialogue,  the sprites all hold deliberate weight. 

For some examples of Bitsy games check out Juno's list of games and if you want to check out some bitsy events that have happened in New York in the past check these out!  Maybe there will be more in the future :)
