Maker Profile: PLAYIR 3D games workshop

Playir’s workshop is aimed at anyone who’s ever wanted to make their own game, but didn’t have enough time or know where to begin. The talk will be highly practical, demonstrating easy-to-use features for just about anyone to get into. Their tools are aimed at getting kids into design, entrepreneurship and coding, so the technical bar of entry is set very low.

You will be taken through a complete visual walkthrough of creating and editing your very own 3D multiplayer RTS game, from a pre-existing game template, that you can instantly tweet out or publish on mobiles for others to play.
