We are fortunate that the Hampshire library has an ever-growing
collection of board
games and digital games. Students, staff, and faculty members have access to
this great resource. Please make use of it, and feel free to give feedback to
Ira on your experience.
GlowLime Games is a student group focused on facilitating game development among
students in the Five College area. They are an amazing resource, and anyone
interested in game development should check them out. You can pitch your own
ideas and/or contribute to other games.
Word Snack and Project IONA
These are two digital games made by Hampshire students, staff, faculty, and Five
College members. Each game was made in a semester as part of the
