Congratulations to Hesiquio Mendez Alejo, who won the Deans' Award for his thesis project, "Immigration Game."
Over the past nine months, students from the UCSC game design BA, BS and MS programs have been working diligently on their capstone projects.
2015-16 was a ton of fun in the Art & Design: Games & Playable Media BA. As usual, it culminated with the Spring AGPM showcase during UCSC's Open Studios. AGPM students took over a studio to demo games from two new courses this spring.
Fantastic news! UCSC has just announced our first new position for the Art, Games & Playable Media program!
Just before the close of classes this spring, the new BA in Art & Design: Games & Playable Media was officially approved by the university.
