The UCF School of Visual Arts & Design and UCF Art Gallery will host “Their Eyes, Our Voices” Personal Game Jam and Showcase with a special performance by Dietrich “Squinky” Squinkifer, a writer, programmer, musician, and visual artist who creates games and playable experiences about gender identity and social situations.

This showcase will feature a curated collection of personal narrative games created by UCF digital media students enrolled in Anastasia Salter’s digital storytelling class. The students created games inspired by Their Eyes Were Watching God using Twine, a free platform for game-making and storytelling that allows designers to combine creative text and expression with STEM knowledge and procedural skills. Refreshments will be served.
