What is GD@IU?

Gamedev@IU is a student-run organization at Indiana University that promotes and facilitates individual development of skills related to all aspects of game development.

With a wide variety of activities, hosted by both the organization as a whole as well as member-led Special Interest Groups, GD@IU aims to provide a platform for students to learn about the medium of games, their creation, and the industry behind them.

In addition to Special Interest Groups, the GD@IU Design/Prototype Lab offers opportunities for experimentation and valuable hands-on experience through workshops and small projects.


In addition to events and activities hosted by Gamedev@IU as a whole, members are able to join a number of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) focused on particular areas within the field of game development. These groups offer more focused opportunities to learn through workshops and guest discussions, as well as practice skills through a wide variety of individual and collaborative projects.

The current set of SIGs includes Game Design, Visual Arts, Music and Sound Design, Game Technologies, Narrative Design, and the Games Industry. Beyond this, any member is able to propose and lead new SIGs focused on the areas they’re most passionate about.


Gamedev@IU hosts a number of events every week, so be sure to check the event calendar to see what's coming up!
