Exploring Futures with Twine - Thursday 19th March 2020
Part of Cambridge Science Festival
Using your creative writing skills and some simple code you can develop a branching narrative complete with score and inventory items. Channel a dystopian future in the style of Black Mirror, or Papers, Please; or you could imagine a brighter future. What problems might they encounter?
In the style of classic text adventures and the Netflix hit Bandersnatch, make something which bridges the gap between literature and video games.
The session is aimed at children aged 11+ and is ideal for Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 students. Adults are welcome too!
If you'd like to see an example of Twine in action, try playing The Amazing Tale of the Storytelling Workshop, a Twine game that we've put together ourselves. You'll discover lots more about the workshop that way and have a fun adventure at the same time! It will open in a new window and will play in all common web browsers.
The fee is £12 for workshop participants, whether an adult or a child. Accompanying adults are charged our standard entry fee of £9.
Although the booking is for a specific time slot, entry to the Centre is permitted all day. The Centre is open from 10am.
Tea, coffee and snacks will be available from our Pac Lunch Shop.
