Character design for video games presents a unique set of challenges. What sort of design fits the technical restrictions of your game? What kind of character best matches a game’s “core idea?” How can you create a character that stand out from the crowd? In this workshop, you will work collaboratively with other students to “pitch” an original game, designed from scratch. This pitch will include several character designs created to match your game’s thesis, and we’ll end the workshop by creating and displaying a paper “demo” of our game, so we can all see it in action. This workshop will be fast, fun, and rewarding for artists of all skill levels looking to better understand the role of collaboration and experimentation in game design and character design.
