Level Up Showcase is the first event of its kind in Canada that showcases the most talented students in game design, animation and computer science programs from colleges and universities across Ontario. This event has become synonymous with new creative talent, and provides a once-in-a-lifetime chance for students to show off their creations to the world.

Previous years have featured record-breaking counts of team projects across various academic institutions. This showcase exhibits outstanding work in game design, animation and computer graphics. Attendees can expect games that use the most current technology and gaming platforms, from motion sensors to VR devices, and more.

Game Competition

Although Level Up Showcase is primarily about showcasing game dev talent, there is a competition aspect. There are several categories that are judged during the event, with the winners announced in the Awards Presentation!

The awards are judged by our generous corporate sponsors, who help make this event possible.

Games are judged on Technical Innovation, Artistic Achievement, and Overall Game Design. In addition, the fan favourite game is given the People’s Choice Award!
