INFO 287: Game Design Showcase

My name is Ryan Tucci and I am currently working on completing my Master of Library and Information Science degree at San Jose State University and this is a collection of games that I have researched, designed, created, and developed for INFO 287: Gamifying Information.

This portfolio showcases the games I have created over the Spring 2017 term to help teach Information Science concepts to students, library users, and staff. Please take some time to navigate this website and see what I have been up to this term!

Remember, most of these games are in the alpha phase of the design process.
