Niagara College Game Development students will showcase their final video game projects for industry professionals on April 12 at the Welland Campus.

The showcase features video games designed by students, from concept to completion.

“Niagara’s Game Development students continue to creatively and technically impress,” said Rick Goertz, program coordinator and professor. “We are also very excited to have students from the joint Niagara College/Brock University Game Programming and Game Design programs join our growing family of developers this year.”

The interactive end-of-year display is an opportunity for attendees to participate and play the games on display and meet the creators. There will also be an awards ceremony and refreshments.

Niagara College’s three-year Advanced Diploma in Games Development prepares students for careers in the digital and interactive media industry.

The event will be held from 7 p.m.- 9:30 p.m. (awards ceremony 8 p.m.) and is open to students, family and friends, media, and industry professionals.
