Artist María Andueza and me were invited by the Culturambiente association to propose a workshop on game design as part of the spanish cooperation agency (AECID) program of activities.

We designed a specific game engine and proposed a collaborative creation workshop. We were able to conduct it in the Cultural Center of Spain both in Managua (Nicaragua) and San Salvador (El Salvador).

The workshop consisted of a two week process where participants -graphics designers, programmers and environmental activists- produced since the beginning of their learning process interactive sequences to be aggregated to the final game.
