With the pandemic still raging across the globe, video games have become the perfect diversion, offering players an opportunity to indulge in new worlds while connecting with friends safely online.

That’s why what the students from the University of Utah’s Entertainment Arts & Engineering video game development program are doing is crucial – creating a host of new adventures for people to delve into. On Friday, Dec. 4, they held their annual “EAE Play 2020,” a virtual event in which the students demonstrated their newest creations under development. The affair was streamed live on EAE’s Twitch channel.

During the event, students demoed 25 new titles including graduate student thesis games, undergraduate capstone projects, first-semester graduate student prototypes, and medical games from The Therapeutic Games and Apps Lab (The GApp Lab), a collaboration between EAE, the Center for Medical Innovation, and the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library.
