Learn how to make interactive games! Using the free Inky engine, you will build a text-based game that takes into account player choices when progressing its narrative – like a choose your own adventure. Design characters, write stories, and develop all the action! Inky is a very simple tool for building games that can be played in a web browser or integrated into other programs, like Unity. You’ll leave the class with your own playable game!

Class limited to 8 participants.

Contact Caroline at or (716) 884-7172 with any questions!

Instructor: Famous Clark

Famous Clark is a current MFA student at the University at Buffalo’s Media Study program. His specific field of study is an interweaving of mythology and folklore, queer and feminist scholarship, and interactivity and portrayal within games. Famous’s research and projects to date aim to develop queer allegories of being, utilizing tropes of fantastical narratives in folklore and fairytales. These allegories, in turn, are injected into game mediums, facilitating the embodiment, interactivity, and portrayal of non-heteronormative realities.
