A workshop in how to write procedural games in javascript using the Phaser.js game engine, and how to work in a narrative more meaningful than the usual “grab item and go.”

Phaser.js is a free and well-tested platform for making 2D games using javascript. Thanks to recent advances in the Javascript tooling environment, these games can now be exported relatively easily to the app store or to a desktop environment for play. This workshop is appropriate for current Javascript developers who would prefer to work with a familiar environment to get started.

In this workshop, we’ll provide a working, current boilerplate to get Phaser packed with Webpack and transpiling using Babel. We’ll go through how to maintain a game state using Redux, developed to maintain Facebook’s game state. On the creative side, we’ll be learning how to think through making a game a little stranger by starting with something familiar and changing it to something more personal.
