University of Michigan

EECS 494: Computer Game Design and Development

Final Projects

John Laird

December, 2005

 

These games were created for University of Michigan, EECS 494: Computer Game Design and Development in Fall 2005 and run on Windows PCs (sorry, not Macs or Linux). We had over 210 people come an play them at our end of the year showcase.

 

Many of the games require 3D hardware acceleration and will not run on older PCs. Some even require the newest graphics cards.

 

You can download .zip files of the games by clicking on the game names below. Once downloaded, you must unzip each program and then within the folder double click on the .exe file.

 

Most users will need to also download an update to Direct-X. This is necessary for all of the games and can be downloaded from Microsoft.

 

The games are listed in alphabetic order. I recommend trying all of the games.
