Creating narrative games with Yarn Spinner

Thursday 31 August 1:00pm – 4:30pm

This workshop will teach attendees how to use the free, open-source game development tool, Yarn Spinner.

We’ll take attendees through everything from setting up editors to write, to integrating Yarn Spinner with Unity and/or Unreal Engine, and bringing the narrative into some sort of UI (e.g. bubbles, adventure game, etc.), and translating, adding voice over, and so on.

Attendees will earn everything that’s needed to use the wildly popular tool (it’s used in everything from Dredge, to A Short Hike, to Lost in Random, to Night in the Woods — which is what we made it for).


PRESENTERS: Paris Buttfield-Addison and Jon Manning
