2017 GDIAC Showcase

Another year has gone by, which means it is time once again for the GDIAC showcase. The showcase will include student game projects from the past year. Once again, we will have a large number of exhibtions, including projects from CS/INFO 3152, CS/INFO 4152 and independent studies.

This year is shaping up to be another strong year for mobile and smartphone games. In particular, we have more competitive multiplayer games than we have ever had before. And, as always, we have a strong collection of traditonal computer games.

The showcase is open to the general public, so that everyone can play and experience these projects. In addition, the public is welcome to vote for the favorite in the award ceremony at the end. We had over 1000 visitors last year. Come see what all of the excitement is about.

Analytic-Based Design Returns this Fall

For students interested in game design who have not been able to fit the Spring course in their schedule, Analytics-Driven Game Design returns this fall after a brief hiatus. This course has a very different focus than the traditional game-design courses but is still built around the same kind of multi-disciplinary teams.

As with all game design courses, admission to the course is by application. Please see the course description page for the application.
