Tech, Talk, Tinker – DIY Game Controllers with Alex Johansson

May 02, 2024

Come and join Game Anglia and SIGNALS in Colchester for a game developers meet up – and build a game controller of your own! This is a casual get together for all game players and game makers in Essex, from aspiring hobbyists to senior industry professionals. Everyone is welcome.

Tech, Talk, Tinker

Join us for a hands on, craft based workshop getting you to consider inputs for games beyond conventional controllers. Craft conductive contraptions and controllers to operate a vibrant LED golf installation with, be that with a hat controller, a mouth operated switch or pair of foil cymbals!

Tech, Talk, Tinker is led by Alex Johansson, a games designer and educator based in Sheffield, Yorkshire. He has spent the last decade developing apps, teaching games development to hundreds of students, lecturing in games programming and doing interactive physical installations.

Showcase Your Game
Bring your laptop and get feedback on your game from industry peers. You’ll have 5 minutes to demo, then a brief Q&A to kickstart ideas for future development.
