Gamefest 2024 Gallery

GameFest made a triumphant 20th anniversary return to EMPAC this year, showcasing the work of tomorrow’s best game design talent from RPI and universities across the northeast.

Among the RPI student projects enjoyed by casual gamers and industry professionals alike were “Avarisia,” a roguelike tabletop game; “Project Jerboa,” a physics-based puzzle-platformer, the experimental, perspective-smashing “Meditations of Menander,” the boxing-and-fishing VR offering “Fisht Fight,” and others. This year also included a graduate research symposium organized by students in the Critical Game Design PhD program.

Thank you to everyone who made GameFest possible, including RPI’s Games and Simulation Arts and Sciences program, Critical Game Design program, and our supporters from the Empire State Development Centers of Excellence Program.
Here’s to many more years of hitting the high score!
