Introduction to Game Development with Pico-8

This summer Mind Cauldron will be running a series of game development workshops for beginners.

Learn to code and make a tiny retro-style arcade game. Learn to make games for yourself, for your friends or your family.

This workshop aims to teach you basics of coding using PICO-8. The programming language used is a sub-set of of the Lua programming language. Lua is a tiny embedded language often used in video game modding.

PICO-8 itself is a tiny game engine and editor. You can export your games to be playable in a web browser, or on desktop (Windows, Mac, Linux).

The outcome from the course is an understanding of basic game development using PICO-8. The lessons learned here can help you understand retro games as well as give you a wider understanding of game development that you can apply to other game engines.

Details on the workshops: TBA
