Let’s play: write your own video game
Like movies and pop music, video games are an important part of our culture. For many, they’re an art form.
Video games can be about absolutely anything. If you were making one, what would yours be about?
Create your own world
To get their ideas turned into games, designers and producers have to write a treatment.
A treatment is a written outline of the idea, including a synopsis (story summary) and information about settings and characters. Why not give it a go?
Your treatment could be anything from 500 to 2,000 words. You could choose to make it more visual, using drawings to illustrate your ideas.
Pitch your ideas
Try to sum up your treatment in a sentence of 25-words or less, then pitch it to your friends using #gamingsheffield. If they like your pitch, why not share your treatment?
