Students and game development programs across the world take the gaming industry by storm each year in terms of degree of excellence and design in the games they create.

We’re proud to start the SXSW Gaming Student Showcase this year with some of the greatest programs and groups of students around, and we hope that you join us to marvel in the level of finesse they’ve taken to their craft.
