Published Student Games

As of Fall 2017, here is a selection of games created and published by NYU Game Center graduates.

Triple Agent

Triple Agent is a mobile party game for 5-9 people. Each player is secretly assigned a role as either a member of The Service or a double agent for VIRUS. Players then pass the phone around as they get events that can reveal information about other players, change their allegiance, or give them a completely new win condition. At the end of the game each player votes on who to imprison. If a double agent is imprisoned, the Service wins. Otherwise VIRUS does. Each game is an intense 10 minutes of deception, cunning, and deduction.
