Beginning our 14th year – 10/19/23

On October 19, 2010 an impressive group of people from across the game industry, higher education and the public sector gathered in Worcester for an event called “MASS Impact: Video Games, Economic Development & Job Creation” to kick around an idea – and that idea became Massachusetts Digital Games Institute. After that event, a steering committee was formed, another meeting was held and MassDigi was formally launched at an event on April 26, 2011. The rest is history.

Over the years, we’ve tried many things, some more successfully than others, made changes and adjustments, started up efforts and wound down some but we’ve always kept a primary focus on students, jobs and the games community. And, as we begin our 14th year, with change as a constant, that approach and that focus remains.

GAME LAUNCH: Zen out in Merge Monastery! – 8/29/23

Merge Monastery, a free, fun merge game, is available for download now at Google Play.

Stuck in an emotionally hard place, you stumble upon an old garden corrupted by bitter emotions that needs a bit of pruning, love, and care.

The world could use a little more positivity, and what better way to represent that idea than by growing happiness through the literal fruits of your labor?

The mobile game was created during the first-ever 2023 MassDigi Summer Studio program by a core development team of Clark University students including Maxwell Xavier, Jay Lam, Wednesday D’Angelo, Ismail Alatise, Alona Yeganova, David MacRae, Emily Clewes, Charles Marble, RJ Anthony, Tyler Gaughan, Ed Greig, Porter Orvetti and Chenxi Gao.
