Public Program - NYC
Game Jam

Friday, April 26, 2019, 12:00 - 12:00 am
Online: itch.io

A Bitsy game jam run by Porpentine Charity Heartscape. Open for anyone to join online.

Come make a game online in your spare time at a to-be announced URL! We'll be using Bitsy, an accessible web engine for making games quickly and easily. Bitsy relies on constraint, limiting you to 8×8 pixel tiles and a three colour palette. Access it here: http://ledoux.io/bitsy/editor.html If you want to participate but are unfamiliar with the Bitsy platform, read this guide.
