Playmakers and Animation Guild EOY Horror Theme Game Jam

Join Playmakers and Animation Guild on the 16th and the 17th of December for a final end of year horror theme game jam.

For those confused on what a game jam is, it is a competition where teams of people come together to make a game in a short amount of time (in this case, less than 48 hours!). Whether you are a veteran game programmer and designer, a talented sprite artist, an audio mixing genius or are just interested in making a game for the first time, then this is a great event to be a part of!

FEIT Prototype Exhibition - Spring 2021

The Faculty of Engineering and IT Prototype Exhibition is an exhibition of student prototypes that is hosted each year at the Faculty. This event aims at celebrating students' successes and recognising outstanding work. This exhibition compiles the best student prototypes from all the project-based subjects in our faculty. 

In light of not being able to organise our usual large in-person showcase at the moment, we will instead host this event online using GatherTown. A video chat platform designed to make virtual interactions more human.

PhD Research Projects: Expressions of Interest

Dolby Australia and the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) have joined forces to examine the use of immersive audio in games.  

The project will develop new approaches to sound and game design to create next-level player experiences.  Using practice-based research methods we will create and test a series of game prototypes that feature immersive audio.

As part of this initiative, we are recruiting a team of postgraduate researchers to explore the future of spatial audio in the context of real-time game engines.  Researchers will work in a state-of-the-art studio environment as part of a research team with expert industry, academic, creative and technical support.
