Hi all,

We invite you to attend our next session, this Thursday, September 20, starting at 6:30 PM. It will take place in Cerebro@SOC. Do take note of the location change!

We will be building upon the tower defense game that we started last week! If you missed that session but want to attend this one, please go through the materials uploaded on our Discord, so you don't get lost.

Join our Discord here: discord.gg/DrW3VeM

Of course, if you do not have GameMaker Studio 2 yet, please download the (free) trial version here:

As usual, we eagerly await your participation!

Hi all,

We warmly invite you to attend our next session, this Thursday, September 13, starting at 6:30 PM. It will take place in the same location as last week's workshop, at AS1 #03-02.

This week, our very own Daniel Liew will be teaching Timelines and Paths, two concepts in GameMaker that can seem abstruse at first glance (being rather unique features of GameMaker); however, with hands-on experience, you will be able to witness firsthand the versatility of these concepts and how they might be applied to a rather common genre of game—tower defense.

If you do not have GameMaker Studio 2 yet, please download the (free) trial version here:

http://www.yoyogames.com/get

We will mainly be using this engine for all of our workshops, so it is highly recommended that you download it and mess around with it on your spare time, so that you will be better able to follow the pace of the workshops.

As usual, we eagerly await your participation!

Hello all!

Missed the last workshop on game design, or just want a recap? Fret not! We've uploaded a recording of the whole thing here:

https://youtu.be/DPSmouZgd5E

Just like those lectures that never seem to stick the first time, we hope that by uploading this video, you'll better absorb the ideas contained within!

The next workshop will be much more hands-on; we invite you to come to learn the basics of game development with GameMaker Studio 2.

The workshop will take place tomorrow, September 6, 2018 from 6:30 PM onwards, at AS1 #03-02. Please note the venue change!

If you are planning to attend, we highly encourage you to download the (free) trial version of GameMaker Studio 2 here:

This workshop serves as a rudimentary foundation for the future technical workshops, so we highly encourage you not to miss it!

As always, we hope to see you there!
