Dare to be Digital is an internationally renowned proving ground for talented computer science and art students to design their own original video game.

Do you like to play video games? Are you serious about designing video games? If so, you've come to the right place. Not only will you get to design and build your dream game but we'll host your team in well equipped computer labs and you'll also receive funding and mentor support to help make it happen.

Dare Protoplay represents the most innovative design from emerging games artists and programmers and is open to the public to come and play the games.
