CUNY Games Festival Archives!

Relive all of your favorite moments from the second annual CUNY Games Festival earlier this month! We’ve storified the tweets from our CUNY Games Festival #cg2015 hashtag, and uploaded photos from the conference to our flickr account. And we’re adding links to slide decks from the presentations, posters, and game demos as they come in — you can find those on our Schedule page.

All of this and more will live in perpetuity on our Archive page. Have some documentation from the conference? Please send it our way! Email
