Interested in game design? Well congratulations, you've come to the right place! The Carolina Gamers Club is USC's only student organization for learning how to design games (no experience required)!Game Design

This semester, our goal is to provide students with the resources and materials they need to create a game! Each meeting we'll either give a lecture on a specific aspect of game deesign/development or go over critical thinking exercises. Throughout the semester, we will also give workshops on the game engine Unity and the graphics software Blender (2D only). Our games will be playable at USC's Family Game Night (Fall) and we will submit the to the Indie Bits & Pieces Gaming Festival (Spring). So let your creativity flow and participate in our game design opportunity!
  • School Year 2015-2016
    • Focus: During the semester, students were divided into teams. Each team was instructed to create a random game with a specific type and must incorporate four specific nouns (with one mulligan).  For example, one team might have to create a first person shooter and incorporate watermelons, Germany, windshield wipers, and rings.
