GRID Games

The Rutgers Game Research and Immersive Design (GRID) group was formed in 2015 as part of TLT's game department. We understand the importance of games and game mechanics used for education and learning. We have created a number of custom games for various department's needs in their online courses. Below are a few examples of the games we've created!
