A Curated Festival

The Winteractive Festival will be be a curated showcase for the best of all of the variety of work that USC Games has to offer from across a broader spectrum of platforms, classes and levels of experimentation.

Things that will stay the same: we will still be holding one on one interviews and offering ad hoc tables for industry recruiters at this winter event. But this year, anyone who submits a game will be eligible to submit a resume to the one on one interview process. (You asked for it, we delivered!) And, never fear, the “big” Demo Day in Spring and the final MFA thesis show will both still remain the same.

So, first step to being part of this great new event is to submit your game. We’ll be inviting a wide array of public and industry professionals, so this is a great opportunity to get your work seen. And we are looking for a wide range of projects to show them. 

Bring out your board games! Bring your hardcore multiplayer games! Bring your VR explorations! Bring your deep narrative content! Bring your experimental play! If you made it, if you’re proud of it, and you haven’t had an event like this on campus to show at, it should be in Winteractive. Be it analogue, digital, hybrid, augmented – we want to see it. Whatever class you made it in, whatever program you’re in, that doesn’t matter.
