Game Lab Hosts 48 Hour Game Development Bonanza

Last weekend, the Games and Culture lab hosted a Global Game Jam, a 48 hour game development event where teams and individuals developed their own new games based on a shared secret theme. The event was one of many that took place all over the world at the same time from Japan to Brazil.

The GGJ brought together students interested in computer science, programming, visual art, and story design and showed them how different disciplines can collaborate to produce a complex, cohesive project.

You can read more about the event here in an article published on the Graduate School’s website.

Duke Today covers the opening of the Game Lab

An article published in Duke Today interviews our very own Shai Ginsburg on the opening of our partner space, the Duke Game Lab, located in Link Classroom 6.

The goal is for more departments across Trinity to take advantage of this unusual space that could be ideal for teaching game design and development, virtual reality, psychological aspects of gaming, cultural representation in games, decision sciences, and other topics.
