The Hand Eye Society invites you to apply to one of two free Game-Making incubators! These incubators are part of TIFF Nexus and supported by the OMDC. They will take place in August-September and October-November. Applications for the incubators are being accepted now and are due by midnight on Sunday July 31st. There will be an info session hosted at TIFF Bell Lightbox on July 26th at 7pm.
Each incubator has a maximum of six participants. Participants will attend a 3-hour session once a week for six weeks.
These sessions will provide participants with:
- experience with several point-and-click gamemaking tools that do not require programming;
- feedback and support on their gamemaking process from experienced gamemakers;
- a peer-mentorship atmosphere that has more in common with crafting circles or writers’ groups than a traditional classroom setting;
- snacks, drinks and good times.
Between sessions, participants will have required assignments generally needing 2 to 4 hours.
