After successfully launching a new major, GameDev at MSU will present a showcase of student-created games in a virtual format on Friday, Dec. 18. The Fall Showcase, which is open to the public, will feature work from several classes in the new Games and Interactive Media (GaIM) major.
In 2020, the Fall Showcase will include the launch of the Game Development Studio class’s Charity Game Bundle. The Charity Game Bundle is a collection of five games developed by teams of students during the course of a single semester at MSU.
Many of these teams will be continuing development on these projects, and this is your chance to get a peek at them after an intense semester of development. Join us for the GameDev at MSU Fall Showcase on Friday, Dec. 18, from 10am to noon.
