Ever thought you can change the society by your game?

In this a half-day hands-on workshop, participants will work as part of diverse teams and use the content, creativity and the ‘uncommon’ common sense to design novel game concepts that make societal impact and are fun to play.

Who should attend – Kings and Queens of Game design, Aces in colleges and institutes, 'Jacks of all trades' in organizations, Diamonds in 6 to 10 standard in school, or rank outsiders (jokers?) – the only prerequisite is serious interest in games.

You will design a game that addresses digital inclusion, women safety, traffic behaviors, 'swachh bharat' - things that matter in day-to-day civic life in the Indian context. Participants will also have the opportunity to learn best practices and pitfalls from the experts, as well discuss challenges in design and usage of applied games.
