Sign up now for the Crayta workshop series and get inspired to design, build and publish in Crayta.
Crayta is the game and world creation platform that anyone can use. It is a truly collaborative game creation platform built on Unreal Engine 4 - you and your friends can jump in and create games together in the cloud, regardless of your experience.
Play from an endlessly growing library of user-generated multiplayer games across a huge variety of genres.
The Crayta Workshop Series: (need to add description of the two workshops)
This series of workshops will explore creating games in Crayta, focusing on applied game design to build compelling and appealing virtual worlds. Learn the techniques that underpin successful games, and develop a competitive offering for one of our regular competitions like the November $200K Mega Jam*.
Session 2: Making Great Experiences With Crayta
Before the session
This session will continue building on understanding from the introductory workshop.
During this session we will explore a range of useful skills that will enable you to build great games in Crayta. By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
Use packages and blueprints to prototype mechanics
Design a core game loop
Incorporate challenges, activities and leaderboards into your game to encourage repeat-play
Fix camera or player movement to enable one-handed play
Customise mobile controls
You will do this by:
Playing and analysing existing games in Crayta that emphasise the style of gameplay and experience quality Crayta can offer
Participating in an interactive workshop independently at intermediate level
Undertaking “after-session” challenges that will lead you through creating a MOBILE first arcade game
Signing-up to participate in the November Mega Jam and knowing the best place to find people to collaborate with
After the session
Buddy-up with a fellow workshopper and follow the after-session challenge sheet - a series of challenges which you can follow to create your first game!
