UNSW Game Development Society

About Us

We are a university club focused on teaching people how to make games. Throughout the year, we host workshops on game development and events straight from the industry.

We aim to bring together students interested in all aspects of game design & development, whether they be programmers, artists, writers, musicians, designers or even QA play-testers.


Weekly Meet-Ups

Look out for our weekly meetups every Thursdays from 6PM to 9PM.
A collaboration space on-campus to allow our student teams to meet up at a regular time every week.

Game Jam

Welcome back to T3 2023. We're kicking things off with an O-week Game Jam! Put together all your ideas, code and assets together for a chance to win some fabulous prizes. Even if you don't participate yourself, come on down to Showcase Night during our weekly meetup of Week 1 where you can try out the fantastic creations made by the participants of the Game Jam.
This theme this term is Play Your Way. You can find more information at the Game Jam's itch.io page.
