Surviving remote work – how to make sure to be aware of your mental Health during remote work

November 24, 2021 • 11:00 am – 02:00 pm (CEST) • online

Remote work can be a big challenge, especially as the world has embraced remote work and many studios have allowed individuals to work from home.

There is a lot of balance that needs to be created to ensure that your mental health is looked after and cared for, while your home becomes your workplace. I will be going over tips and tricks to keep your work life and home life balanced.


Make Unity your own: Customize the Engine to your needs

November 24, 2021 • 02:00 – 04:00 pm (CEST) • online

In this workshop we will dive into editor scripting in Unity. If done properly, it will make your life as a programmer easier and also make the designers and artists working on your game happy.

We will have a look at Custom Inspectors, Property Drawers and your very own Editor Windows that will help to make your daily work in Unity more efficient. At the end of the workshop, you will have a set of editor extensions and the knowledge to extend the Unity editor according to your needs.


Tackling Your Blind Spots: How to Create Better and More Diverse Characters

November 24, 2021 • 02:00 – 04:00 pm (CEST) • online

Gamers are diverse and they want to see themselves represented. In recent years, there has been a noticeable shift in the industry, with an increasing number of companies introducing female, genderqueer or ethnically diverse characters, and tapping into the creative potential of hitherto untold stories. Still, games – like other forms of media – reproduce and reinforce stereotypes, and so do we. People are influenced by media images, their personal and professional environment, so it’s perfectly normal and nothing to be ashamed of. What matters is how we deal with these unconscious biases. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to identify stereotypical representations and how to avoid them in your own work.


sHeroes Wanted – How to Build and Run Your Own Game Studio

November 24, 2021 • 02:00 – 04:00 pm (CEST) • online

Starting and building your own game studio isn’t as much rocket science as you may think. There are a bunch of important steps you need to plan and few things to keep in mind and you’ll be able to realize your dream game studio.

In this workshop we will be looking at the first steps of building your own game studio, sharing experiences and answer as many individual questions as the time allows. Please do come prepared with questions and stories you may want to share with the other sHeroes in the session!


Unverpixelter Hass? Wie Videospiele und ihre Communitys auf toxisches Verhalten reagieren

November 24, 2021 • 02:00 – 04:00 pm (CEST) • online

(Please note that this workshop will be held in German.)
Videospiele sind Kulturgut und fest in der Gesellschaft verankert. Dabei setzen immer mehr Spiele auf Diversität und Inklusion und brechen mit problematischen Narrationen. Nach wie vor gibt es jedoch einige Games, die Repräsentation nicht aufgreifen oder diese problematisch umsetzen. Auch Teile der unterschiedlichen Communitys teilen menschenverachtende Aussagen. In diesem Workshop wird über die Chancen und Möglichkeiten von Videospielen berichtet. Gleichzeitig soll dargestellt werden, wie rechtsextreme Akteur:inne versuchen, die Gamingkultur zu instrumentalisieren.


60 Frames Per Second: Optimize your game in Unity

November 24, 2021 • 04:30 – 06:30 pm (CEST) • online

In this workshop we will explore one of my favorite parts of game development. A part that no player will ever notice or talk about when you’ve done it properly. The thing that can decide if your game will be a fun experience or a frustrating, lagging piece of software:
Performance optimization. Making sure your game runs smoothly on every players device.

You will learn the basics of how and why performance bottlenecks happen and how to prevent them. You will be introduced to the tools you can use to gather and analyze data about your game’s performance and how to identify issues. Then we will talk about some of the techniques you can use to start optimizing your Unity game.
