About Tinderbox PlayAway Games Festival
Over 2 weeks from Monday 22nd Feb – Friday 5th March, we will be celebrating and supporting the creativity, diversity, innovation, and imagination of games design, interactive media and play. Over 30 game designers, artists, composers, educators and others involved in games will be getting together through a series of panel discussions, workshops, demos, music performances, digital play sessions, and game jams – and we’d love you to join us too!
At a time when so many people across the world are moving on-line due to the pandemic, we wanted to turn to the Games industry for inspiration – to ask how games are adapting and responding to the pandemic, and to explore what role they could play looking ahead.
Check out our website to find out more about the festival.
Bitsy is a free-to-use online/browser-based game-making tool created by Adam Le Doux, that allows you to make small games & interactive pieces without programming. You don't need to download anything to run Bitsy - go here to start making your own game: https://ledoux.itch.io/bitsy
