The thrill of victory

SMU Guildhall's winning 'Kraven Manor' team at GDC 2014

What a day!

Two SMU Guildhall student game teams (Kraven Manor and Hymn of the Sands) were named finalists in the Intel University Games Showcase, a competition which awards $20,000 in hardware grants to the winning school(s). Twelve games were judged on best gameplay and best visuals and the Guildhall team that produced Kraven Manor won BOTH! Intel will be providing $20,000 worth of hardware to our program. How amazing is that?!?

We are so proud of both teams and congratulate all of the members of the Kraven Manor team for their landslide victory. To download and play the winning game, please visit
