Cogswell Game Development Club
Game Development Club is the largest club on campus where students work together to create games. Students from every major participate in the club from creating graphics to making music and sound effects for each game. Club participants compete in “Game-of-the-Month” challenges in which they do just that- create a game in a month! At the end of the month, participants see who came up with the best concept and best game-play experience. When you visit campus, make sure to check out their Game Development Club room.
