In an exciting partnership, Hull Maritime have teamed up with The Goodwin Development Trust to provide local families and young people with Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM) skills.

Our partnership has led to the development of the “Maritime Gamesmaker Project” where young people can get involved in a range of maritime themed activities. Goodwin Trust have been running video game development sessions, board game creation workshops, family Lego sessions, digital arts magazine creation and much more throughout the year. These activities are mainly based at the Goodwin Hub on Anlaby road with outreach opportunities also happening all over the city.

What is being Created and how is it benefiting people?

Timefort is a series of free to play episodic adventure RPG video games and printable table-top games created by local young people aged 16-29. Local Young people have gained valuable life skills through involvement with every step of these games’ creation, from artwork to music composition, to game design and play testing. Alongside this, developers have had the opportunity to research and discover some of Hull’s key maritime histories.

In the games, players can go on exciting time travelling adventures to important periods in Hull’s maritime history to ensure the future of our city is safe!
