Shoot'em up Workshop 2018

From 12th to 16th February, Video Game workshop "Shoot'em up" was held.

Second and third-year students in Video Game Art and MANAA’s students who want to pursue the study of Video Game Art participated in this workshop.

Each group made up of 10s students from all the levels and tried to creat a shooting game within 5 days. It was the first time for MANAA’s students to work on video game and also this workshop was to get them to learn the group work. They had to divide the work in fair and efficient way according to each student’s skills but also make a decision on the theme, the scenario, the main person, etc.

Workshop Day 1

After dividing up the job in each group, students start to work on the theme of their original game and the scenario.
