The University of Southern California (USC) GamePipe Laboratory Fall 2017 Showcase saw 25 teams of students demonstrate their original video games, ranging from fully immersive virtual reality games to smartphone apps.

During the event, visitors were able to test all of the games currently in development, including the ones that were selected at last spring's demo day for development.

Since the USC GamePipe Laboratory was founded in 2005, it has worked with more than 2,000 students.

One of the games, "Embedded," is a virtual reality game that takes players on a journey through the Vietnam war, giving them the opportunity to act as a journalist writing a story on the war.

"We are using input from the business students, as well as analytics from data, to help the design process and lead the project in the right direction through both organization and management," says USC computer science student Jonathan Vincent.
