The NYU Game Center will be at RPI’s GameFest 2014. If you’re at GameFest, visit our student games and stop-by our booth to talk with MFAs and staff and learn all about the NYU Game Center!
Rensselaer’s School of Humanities and Social Sciences celebrated the addition of the Game Studies Minor by hosting a GameFest Symposium and Exhibition in 2004. Now an annual event, the symposium showcases computer games designed by dozens of student teams, 20 of whom have been selected to compete for this years awards. The event introduces students to philosophers, computer scientists, artists and cognitive scientists who are conducting research in game design, development and production, providing the potential for interdisciplinary junctures and co-operation between the arts and cultural studies, social sciences, computer sciences, engineering and emerging technical research in information technology.
