DigiPen at the IGF

The original proving ground for both independent and student game developers, the IGF has recognized more DigiPen student games than those of any other school in the world.

Since the IGF began its Student Showcase in 2001, it has granted 44 awards to 34 DigiPen student projects. DigiPen games have earned the coveted “Best Student Game” title for three of the six years that the IGF has awarded it, and have even won awards in categories competing against professional developers – making DigiPen one of the only schools in the world to do so.
