MAGELLAN is a European funded project that aims to enhance peoples’ creativity in designing location-based games. The MAGELLAN team have designed a location game-based authoring tool to help people easily design their own location based experiences without any technical skills.

The DMLL will be hosting a workshop in conjunction with the Serious Games Lab to help users use the authoring tool to create location based games.

We would be honoured, if you could join the event and become member of the MAGGELAN User Group (MUG) by following this link. The MUG already comprises 10 organisations in the creative sector (e.g. small game studios, web development, artists, marketing etc.). Your role is envisaged to act as a member of the advisory board that suggests, discusses and reflects on ideas, resources and practices with regards to designing and deploying an authoring environment for creating and playing location-based games. As a member of the MUG, you are invited to join on a voluntary basis with no contractual commitments.

As a participant to this workshop you will have a number of exclusive benefits such as access to the game authoring environment, networking opportunities and presentations about ongoing developments.
