IAM Students at ChiTAG

Columbia College Chicago proudly represented games created by students on November 17th & 18th at the annual Chicago Toys and Games Fair. The games presented were part of indie team, large team & game production. The experience gave a chance for the college to represent the IAM department’s work through real-time user interaction, or simply by letting people play games. The students received useful feedback which will help the production and post- production stage for capstone next semester.

Students from all concentrations helped explain and pitch their game. Programmers, Designers, Artists & Audio Engineers presented their contribution to their respective project through demos, tutorials and full builds.
