Countdown to Doors Open:

Student Game Showcase

Student Devs

Incredibly, schools across the world have created degree programs entirely dedicated to video games. Studies range from game animation, to soundtrack composition, to level design, and so on. Students in these programs enter their games for a chance to be in our showcase on our expo floor, so come check them out!

Check back here for a list of the student game showcase selections!

A full list of the selected student games for Atlanta will be posted soon.

Thanks to all students who entered! Be sure to check back here next year to enter your student game. Just so you know, we have shows year round in other cities. So don’t forget to look out for our next festival to enter your game into.

Quick facts about entering

The full rules are available on the entry form, but this is some basic info to get you started.

Selection Process: The DreamHack Staff reviews all of the games entered and considers the following criteria: Gameplay, Quality, Fun Factor, Technique, Design, etc. DreamHack Staff then selects the top games which will be featured as part of the Student Game Showcase. There are no entry fees.

Eligibility: You must be a student developer, at least 18 years old or older. It must be your original work, created while you were in school. You will need to be present for all days of the expo to show your game.
