The MICA Game Lab explores the role of play within culture and its potential to create new forms of meaning. We believe that games are a cultural form that is vital to how we learn, create community, tell stories and engage with the world. We create playful projects and games, hold public events, host a designer in residence program, run our Game Design BFA and are a hub for game related activities at the Maryland Institute College of Art and the Baltimore community.
We just hosted a chapter of the Global Game Jam, please enjoy all the games created by the amazing Game Design Baltimore Community here
Also our annual show FALL ARCADE 2020 - Screenshot Edition is live.
