WORCESTER — The public is invited to put their game skills to the test during MassDiGI’s Summer Innovation Program (SIP) Open House. The event, featuring student-created games, provides an opportunity to play the games and meet the student interns who made them as part of MassDiGI’s annual Summer Innovation Program at Becker College. For the past 12 weeks, 32 top video game development interns from 19 colleges and universities from around the world worked in teams to develop games from scratch with guidance from staff and game industry mentors. Some of the schools represented this year include: Becker College, Berklee College of Music, Brown University, Carnegie Mellon University, Letterkenny Institute of Technology (Ireland), New York University, Northeastern University, Pratt Institute, RISD, Swarthmore College, University of Pennsylvania and Wellesley College.

This summer’s featured SIP projects are:
