Friday Stories

Värmlands Game Dev Community

A unique talk/workshop series from Indie game developers!

Join us in inspiring the future of game development.

Our goal is to inspire students and game developers to make games by introduing them to other industry proffessionals. Knowledge and skills transfer where game industry professionals host workshops on both narrative and inclusive game design.

Friday Stories consists of two parts. Part one starts with an industry professional holding a short talk on a topic and then the participants take what they learn and create a game concept or prototype during part two, the workshop.
Workshop is the way we get people engaged. #learningbydoing.
