GameLab analogue to digital - web 2  

Analogue to Digital was a one-day practical workshop that focused on rapid prototyping of innovative, experimental digital games using unusual or alternative analogue inputs.

The day focused on playful, physical interaction with real-world objects and was delivered by Yann Seznec, Jonathan Brodsky and Sean McIlroy of Lucky Frame. This is the latest workshop run by Abertay’s Game Lab, the research unit investigating experimental game development that is led by Dr Dayna Galloway.
