This weekend: Play video games made by CWRU engineering students and grads

Gaming Lab Student

At Case Western Reserve University, our students (and alumni!) work hard. But they know how to unwind when the time comes—kicking back with friends and playing video games created by engineers and developers with roots at CWRU.   

This weekend, you’re invited to join the action with our Homecoming virtual gaming events celebrating CWRU’s video game creators and players. 

Virtual Gaming Arcade – “Let the Games Begin”

Starting Friday, October 22 at 6 a.m. Eastern through Sunday, October 24

Play original video games developed by CWRU students over the past five years in the Kevin Kranzusch Gaming, Simulation, and Visualization Lab. You’ll have access to the Case Gaming Library, curated by the CWRU ESports team.

The Kevin Kranzusch Gaming, Simulation and Visualization Lab is home to 20 Alienware PCs with Nvidia 1080GTX GPUs; an Oculus Rift and HoloLens development room; and an iOS and Android mobile App development room. The lab is used for classes, personal projects and by the Case Esports Club, which is open to casual and competitive gamers.

More Than A Game: How Case Uses Computer Gaming For Meaningful Fun

Saturday, October 23 at 3 p.m. Eastern

Three pioneering professors of game design will join CWRU 2011 alumnus and game developer Ty Taylor in a virtual event to explain how CWRU uses gaming for meaningful fun. You’ll hear from Taylor—the creator of Tumblestone and The Bridge (a CWRU Independent Games Festival Student Showcase nominated game)— as well as from CWRU professors Marc Buchner and Michael Fu and Cleveland Institute of Art professor Anthony Calabro.
