This weekend college and high school students from around Oklahoma gathered to showcase their creativity in different aspects of video game creation. Organized by computer science professor Roger Mailler with help from students and faculty from across TU’s colleges, the Heartland Gaming Expo is a competition encompassing all aspects of game development, including game production, concept art, scoring and game design.
There are three main categories of competition in the Heartland Gaming Expo. The main event is the gaming showcase, where students get to show off games that they have created in the last year. The “gallery” portion provides a showcase for concepts, art, animations and other projects that are not full-fledged games.
