Husky Game Development (HGD) has been developing dozens of games for computers, gaming consoles, and smartphones since 2004. HGD is part of the Michigan Tech Enterprise Program, a group of organizations where students make decisions regarding real-world projects in a business-like learning environment. HGD is interested in developing new industry connections and creating games for any company or organization. Game development takes more than just enthusiastic programmers—it also requires the dedication of audio and visual artists, project managers, and most importantly, someone with a story or idea. Husky Games has a strong history of bringing these people together and challenging them to refine an initial idea into a full-blown, immersive and interactive experience.
HGD is managed by five dedicated undergraduate students who work with guidance from Prof. Scott Kuhl. Similar to a real business, HGD management determines which projects to pursue, selects a leader who is responsible for each project, and selects students to work on each project based on individual skills and interests.
