OUR PAST

Originally known as the Game Design Collective, we were founded on November 9th, 2016 at Hunter College. We applied to charter officially as a club with Hunter College in 2017 but were denied. Due to these circumstances, we ended up joining forces with 2 other games-related clubs and submitted an appeal to try and charter together as one organization. Our appeal was denied and we were told to wait until the next application cycle.

 

We continued to operate anyways, thanks to the dedication of our members and the support of the Theater Department. In September 2018, we were approved to charter.

Over the past three years, we have grown to establish ourselves as the ringleader of games throughout CUNY. However, we still currently lack sufficient funding and internal support on campus. We grew too large to continue our operations within the Theater Department's space, but we keep finding ways to make it work.

 

To ensure our organization receives the support it needs and to solidify ourselves as a public figure within NYC games communities, we are in the process of incorporating and filing for 501(c)(3) status as a public nonprofit arm.

OUR LEGACY

No matter how far we go, we will never forget where we came from. One thing is certain: we will change the world. We will continue to support all of us who know that affordable education, the games industry, and the communities these institutions create are important.
