Students from the University of Utah’s Entertainment Arts and Engineering video game development program got their game on during this year’s “EAE Play,” the annual fall event when they show off the games currently being made.

More than 40 games were on display during “EAE Play,” which was held Dec. 7 at the EAE Master Games Studio on the U campus. The titles being shown were from graduate students as well as undergraduate senior capstone projects. The public was invited to playtest the games and provide students with tips to improve their designs. New University of Utah president Ruth Watkins also dropped by to see their progress.

“This is an important part of the process — to observe the public playing their games and use that information to turn them into award-winning games,” said U School of Computing professor Robert Kessler, who is EAE’s founder and director.
