About the Showcase

Explore the future of games in one of the largest student game festivals in the country! The UCSC Games Showcase (previously known as the Sammy Showcase) celebrates undergraduate and graduate game design from the latest academic year, particularly highlighting games from the undergraduate and masters senior class's capstone sequences. The exhibit features video games, tabletop games, research talks, student artists, and games-related community activities. This event is free, family friendly, and open to all.
