Team Up

Each year, the Senior Show challenges all Game Studio students to team up to design and pitch their best prototype of a game to Game Studio faculty judges. Only the top eight are selected to move on to full development, with extra help from members of eliminated teams.

Get to Work

One night of incredible game demos takes a whole year for our Game Studio students to pull off. The Upside-Down Curriculum puts students in their major right away, and challenges them to work together in a studio environment, mastering craft and collaboration, leading up to the Senior Show.

Get Noticed

Recruiters from AAA studios are invited each year to see our students present, test out their games, and set up job interviews for potential employment. Our alumni network and Career Collaborative are a one-of-a-kind resource for breaking into the game industry.

It all comes down to this.

The creativity on display amazes us year after year. From player experiences that are broad and innovative, to environments and designs that could go toe-to-toe with a professional studio, our students bring their best (along with their game faces). Their reels demonstrates the full range of incredible talent of our graduates, and we encourage you to explore the most recent Senior Show.

Crowd cheers for students presenting at the Senior Show.
