Organized by The NYU Game Center

The NYU Game Center, established in 2008, is an independent, multi-school center for the research, design, and development of digital games. The Center is housed at the Tisch School in the Skirball Center for New Media and is a collaboration with NYU's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Polytechnic Institute of NYU, Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, and Tisch School of the Arts. Its goal is to incubate new ideas, create partnerships, and establish a multi-school curriculum to explore new directions for the creative development and critical understanding of games. In so doing the Game Center will help establish New York City as a place of innovation and creativity in this important field.
