Educational Games Development Workshop

This year at ECGBL we will be running an interactive Educational Games Development Workshop, where we plan to make a game in a day!

We will use the Game of Games, developed at the University of Twente to guide this Game Development Workshop. (

This event will ask participants to work in groups to come up with a pre-prototype design for an educational game – the specification of which will be provided by the organisers.

We will start with a value proposition game leading to bright ideas that we will develop during the day. To focus the ideas we will work with a general theme (to be announced). Behavioural change will be leading our MDA design. By the end of the session we will have created working prototypes that can be demonstrated during the conference. In the early afternoon they will be tested on fun, flow and feedback mechanisms.

The workshop is open to anyone to attend with any level of experience and we expect to have a multi-national group. Numbers will be limited so early registration is recommended. Participants should bring a laptop or tablet with them. No prior experience is required because we aim to have multi-disciplinary groups.

The workshop will be held on Wednesday 2nd October 2019 at The University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark.
