The Games Institute / UW IGDA

The Games Institute Logo




The Games Institute conducts research into the past, present, and future of digital games. With a research network joining multiple universities and multiple industry partners, we explore the human side of games and game-related technologies and interactions, with the constant goal of understanding the compelling user engagement that games deliver in fields ranging from entertainment, education, health, and business.



The UW IGDA (International Game Developers Association) is a local chapter thatpulls together people working in the field of games from academia, industry, and the surrounding community.  Check us out at:
