DePaul Student Games
The Game Dev program at DePaul University emphasizes multi-disciplinary game production. Here are some of the completed and in-progress games and mods created by students in courses and competitions.
Devil’s Tuning Fork
What if you saw the world with your ears? Inspired by M.C. Escher’s classic optical illusion and the echolocation of dolphins, Devil’s Tuning Fork challenges you to explore a new mode of perception through sound visualization. Devil’s Tuning Fork was created by the DePaul Game Elites team at DePaul University’s College of Computing & Digital Media in Chicago. The team was selected by our Game Designer in Residence, Alex Seropian. The game has been submitted for consideration by the Independent Game Festival’s Student Showcase.
