About

Members showing off a VR game

We are Game Dev McGill, the game development student society of McGill University. We are a group of students that are passionate about creating games and enjoy learning new aspects of game development. We hold events to fuel the creativity of our members and provide them with the resources to improve their game development skills. We welcome all students regardless of experience level!

Our Games

At Game Dev McGill, we require all members to keep working on games every semester, whether they’re for personal projects or made as part of game development events. Our own events include internal monthly game jams, our yearly McGameJam, and participating in Ubisoft’s GameLabs competition.
