Organized by RPI's Game Dev Club, RGS is an annual opportunity for all Rensselaer students to showcase their games to the local community. This year's event is the second following a pandemic-era hiatus between Fall 2019 and 2022, so we're looking forward to seeing you there -- especially if it's your first time around!
Date: Saturday, November 18, 2023
Time: 10:00am - 6:00pm
Location: RPI Union, McNeil Room and Lobby
Address: 1761 15th St, Troy, NY 12180

Attending RGS 2023
The Rensselaer Games Showcase will follow a basic "expo" format: Attendees are welcome to drop in/out at any point from 10am-6pm on Saturday to chat with developers and, of course, play some games! The event is free and open to the public.
We hope in the future to reintroduce keynote speakers or panel discussions featuring local partners, as well.
Campus visitors are allowed to park in the West and North Lots without a parking permit on weekends (e.g., Saturday and Sunday). West Lot is located off of Sage Avenue (and beside West Hall at 80 8th Street, Troy, NY 12180); North Lot is located off of 11th Street (and beside Anderson Field on Sage Avenue).
Street parking is also available on a first come, first served basis on most campus roads.
Additional campus parking information, including metered spots, can be found at RPI Info.
The McNeil Room is located on the 2000-level of the RPI Union, which is most readily accessed via the building entrances facing 15th Street and Sage Avenue. Sloped walkways for building access can also be found along 15th Street and the "back" of the building near Griswold Road.
The venue itself is a large cafeteria-style space featuring a Panera Bread along the southern side of the room.
RGS 2023 will feature twenty games from RPI students and affiliates. Many of these students are enrolled in the Institute's Games and Simulation Arts and Sciences Program, but others come from majors and departments from across the university (and, of course, members of the Game Dev Club itself)!
