Game Design Workshop

Calling all game designers - sign up for Protospiel at Looking For Gamers

Been building a game? Want to test it with people who also love game design? Then Protospiel is for you.

Over two full days, you'll demo your game, play-test games by fellow designers, and enjoy seminars from industry professionals. You'll get frank and honest advice on your prototype, tips on getting games published, and feedback from experts in the field.

When: 8-9 July 2017
Where: At LFG, in the Boggabilla Room of Bankstown Sports Club

Details TBC

What you need to do and bring:

Before the day

  • Register by providing the details listed under Registration
  • If you want your game to be blind playtested you must send the rules to us by email by the date specified in your confirmation email.
  • If you have volunteered to be a blind playtester, set aside some time to read the rules before the event.

On the day

  • Bring your prototype to play.
  • Make sure that you have a full written set of rules - it is embarrassing if you can't remember how to play the game.
  • Pen and paper to note down suggestions on improvements for your game.

The physical appearance of the prototype is not critical, other than that the graphics are clear enough to make it easily playable.

The sessions will be 2 hours long. This time includes:

  • rules explanation
  • set-up
  • play
  • debrief

We suggest you allow about 30 minutes to debrief your session. This means that if your game takes more than 80 minutes to play, you will need to figure out a way of truncating it for test purposes.

We will provide a contact list of all participants to enable exchange of information after the event.
