Virtual Event Details

Are you involved with Computer Game Development? Do you know of staff or students at academic institutions who are?  If so, please share this information on this event with them so they can attend this year's Competition.  The top 10 of this year's entries of games submitted will compete and be judged by professionals from the Computer Game Development industry. 

Building on the success of last year's competition, this year's is also being held in a Hybrid format! We'll be in-person at California State University, Fullerton, and virtual in Twitch/Discord.

The IEEE GameSIG Intercollegiate Game [Developers] Competition, now in its eleventh year, is an educational outreach project of IEEE GameSIG (which is part of the Orange County IEEE Computer Society, but does not geographically limit competing teams). The purpose of this event is to help students develop and demonstrate their skills at game design, development and promotion. They are challenged to show off a playable level of a game, live, in front of an audience of experienced game industry personnel and guests (which are hoping you will join).  The Computer Society Publication Office produced a 9 minute Youtube video about a previous live Competition/Showcase which is available at 2013 IEEE Intercollegiate Game Showcase.

The competition typically attracts 30 to 50 entries, from which the top ten are chosen to present their work to the "live" audience and judges. Three primary awards are given, plus a series of special awards for unique achievements. These special awards are different each year based on the nature of what the developers are showing.  Their is also a People's Choice Award.  More details on the competition can be found at GameSIGshowcase.org.

This year's showcase will be hosted from the California State University, Fullerton, and held Online via Twitch.

The Twitch stream will start at 1:00 PM (PT) and end by 5:30 PM (PT).

Registered individuals will receive reminders about the Showcase as we get closer to the event, with the Twitch link provided the night before the Showcase.  The Twitch stream will be public.
