2013 GDIAC Showcase
After a quiet 2012, the GDIAC Showcase returns, even bigger than ever. This year we have a record number of projects in both CS/INFO 3152 and CS/INFO 4152, including the most number of mobile games that we have ever had. The showcase also includes several interesting independent study projects that explore interesting concepts such as sound-only gameplay.
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. Come join us and make this our best Showcase yet.

The GDIAC website has been a bit inactive for the past year, but it has not been because of a lack of activity. The school of Computing and Information Science (CIS) has seen a lot of changes since GDIAC was first founded. The former Information Science program has become an official department with its own major and minors. In addition, CIS has been a major participant in the new NYC Tech campus.
GDIAC has been adapting to a lot of these changes as they take place. There have been significant changes in the game design minor, including a major renumbering of the core game design courses. This reorgnization allows students to use the game design courses to satisfy other graduation requirements beyond the game design minor, giving students more options and flexibility.
With the newly renumbered courses being offered this spring semester, we are relaunching the GDIAC website to reflect the changes. Take a look around and see what we are up to.
