Game Dev Capstone 3D Games: Spring 2019

The 3D Capstone Course in the GDAD Program at the University of Texas at Austin occurs each spring, and challenges students to utilize all their new skills to create a final project. Undergraduates from the Departments of Arts and Entertainment Technologies and Computer Science, as well as other departments across campus, were assigned to one of five teams, and each team developed their own unique 3D video game.
