Stop by for our FUSE Exhibits!

Debuting at Fuse this year are six Catapult Projects. These are cross-discipline creations worked on by students from the freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. Throughout both semesters, teams are hard at work perfecting these projects with consistent feedback from faculty and other peers. In addition to Catapult we will also be showcasing the Senior Game Design Capstone project, the game developed by the Master’s Program as well as several independent student projects including an audience driven interactive adventure. Beyond this we will also be displaying the experiences of our UI/UX students, showing off the works of our animation students, and presenting the portfolios of our game art students.


Packlash is a two player game where you pick a random pack, shuffle it, and play. Each deck has items that give you different win conditions. Interactions and reactions are cards that manipulate the game to help you get to your win condition. You play interactions and items on your turn and reactions on your opponent’s turn.

Production Team

We are the FUSE Production Team. A lot of things need to be done to make sure that the event itself runs smoothly, and that’s where we come in. We are here to plan the events, set up sponsorships, and reach out to the community with info about the event. On top of that, we are also in charge of the companion app for the event, FUSEBOX. Our goal here is to make sure that all the hard work students have been putting in throughout the year can be properly recognized by their peers, the University, and the general public!
