What is the

Games Showcase?

A unique fusion of engineering and art, computer games are a growing global phenomena, driving technological and cultural innovation. The study of games offers the opportunity to blend creativity and personal expression with technical development to tackle challenging engineering, social, and design problems.

The UCSC Games Showcase and Sammy Awards celebrate the work of the UCSC games community of students, alumni, and faculty. The exhibit features video games, tabletop games, research talks, student artists, and games-related community activities, highlighting the senior projects from the latest academic year.
