The WilmU Game Design and Development program combines both the programming, art, and design aspects of creating video games for major platforms, consoles, mobile devices, and simulations. Gaming has been integrated into how we learn, socialize, interact, and gather information.


The Cecil College Game Design degree provides high quality, hands-on, career education in the areas of interactive and 3D design and level building. Students will complete the process of developing 3D animation, visualization, simulation, and interactive experience to prepare to employment.

24-Hour Game Jam

This is a competition where game developers have just 24 hours to create as much of a video game as they can. These teams of 4-5 players have to work against the clock and each other while following guidelines set forth by Scott Shaw (a director at Wilmington University) and Video Game Master Brandon Boas (an director at the School of Technology).

The competition starts 2pm on Friday, April 12th, continues overnight, and ends at 2pm on Saturday, April 13th. From 2-3pm judges and attendees will play test the games. There will be 2 winning teams – 1 will receive the Game Jam Award and the 1 will receive the Attendee Award. Both come with prize packages.
