About Us

Michigan Tech's location on map Michigan's Upper Peninsula

Based in Houghton, Michigan, Husky Game Development Enterprise (HGD) has been dedicated to producing experienced game developers since 2004. We focus on using professional development tools to give students a leg up in the industry, such as Unity, Blender, and Wwise.

New students are able to join HGD after one semester at Michigan Tech. Teams contain a mix of skills, so new members can learn game dev from the ground up, and experienced members can implement their knowledge. There are nearly no limitations, so teams can be creative and develop for any platform throughout the academic year.

In the past HGD has partnered with sponsoring companies to design games. We also get involved with campus events like BonzAI Brawl - an AI programming competition that anyone can partake in. This exciting annual event takes a full year to organize and is put together with the joint effort of HGD and the Women in Computing Sciences organization.
