The Entertainment Software Association (ESA) and E3 are again hosting the E3 College Game Competition, which recognizes the country's best student talent in video game development. Out of more than 400 U.S. colleges and universities with computer and video game development programs, five finalists were selected by a panel to showcase their games at E3 2015.
The winner of this year's E3 College Game Competition will be announced on Thursday, June 18, at 10:30 AM, in South Hall Booth #3023. Attendees are encouraged to come by at that time to watch the award ceremony and congratulate the winners. Photos from the awards ceremony will also be featured on E3Insider.com.
"These great finalists are the next generation of our industry. We are proud to honor this academic talent so we can help support the positive trajectory of creativity and innovation," said Rich Taylor, senior vice president of communications and industry affairs at the ESA.
The 2015 finalists are: Savannah College of Art and Design, University of Utah, Brigham Young University, DigiPen Institute of Technology, and the Academy of Art University. In order to be considered, competing schools were required to submit a playable game, story details, and relevant content assets. This year there were a record number of submissions from video game design programs around the country.
