Sixth Annual GameFest


Sixth Annual GameFest

EMPAC, Studio 1

April 24, 2009 5:00 PM - April 25, 2009

For the past five years, the Annual Game Festival and Symposium succeeded due to the quality of the student games, and the themes and caliber of speakers that are the focus of the Symposium.  Our consistent purpose is to expand students' game development skills and to increase their understanding of potential career options in games and simulation.

This year, the Festival will be held in Rensselaer's new Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC).  Student games will be exhibited on Friday, April 24, and on Saturday, April 25, our guest speaker, Chris Crawford, Co-founder, Storytron:  Interactive Storytelling (, will hold an Interactive Storytelling Workshop and Key Note Address.  We encourage students from Rensselaer and beyond to participate in this student competition.  Games & Simulation faculty will select the games for exhibition from among those submitted and cash prizes will be awarded to the top five teams, sponsored for the second year by Vicarious Visions.  There is no fee for attendance or participation.

More information about the event and a full schedule can be found on the Game Festival and Symposium website.
