The University of Pennsylvania Game Research and Development Environment (UPGRADE) is a student group at Penn that fosters creative expression through game development in the Penn community by bringing together artists, designers, programmers, writers, and musicians.

We welcome members who are interested in any aspect of game development, from prototyping and concept creation to execution and publishing, including business, marketing, and financial considerations!

We meet every Saturday, from 4-7, in Levine room 307.
