Games in universities

I stumbled on this “virtual” games “museum” (i.e. just a bunch of – althought highly cureated – webpages on the subject) at the University of Waterloo.

Also of interest, this company started to publish videogames created by students in a university games program :

The company, Utah Game Forge, opened in May and just released its first game, Heroes of Hat! (above), written and produced by a group of 14 Utah seniors.

Owned and financed by the university, the company is the brainchild of faculty members in the entertainment-arts-and-engineering program, a collaboration between the School of Computing and the department of visual and media arts. The professors worked with the university’s Technology Commercialization Office to establish the company.

Finally, a colleague mentioned in passing that the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library at the University of Toronto also has a fairly large collection of paper-based historical games, of which Coach House apparently published a catalogue of about a decade ago.
