About the Workshop
The reason sometimes people have trouble finding the game of the scene is because they don't know what's crazy in the world they created.
In this class we will focus on creating boring worlds, fun worlds, worlds that will never exist again! By working with top-of-intelligence we will discover what is unusual in these worlds so we can have clear games in the silliest scenes.
