StudioLab invites our community to use play as a tool for creation and reflection. By creating temporary spaces defined by flexible rule sets, we're able to see our designs and ideas from new perspectives. We think play sparks the imagination, welcomes collaboration, and facilitates respectful commentary.
Games are important cultural artifacts for conveying the human experience. We're fortunate to be living in a time when theories of play and games criticism are exploding in both popular and academic domains.
StudioLab has a game collection of over 500 titles across Epic, Origin, Riot, Blizzard, GOG, itch.io, and Steam stores. When possible we purchase DRM-free titles, so that they can be installed on all of our computers. We're continually adding titles to our collection. If there's a game you think we should have, let one of our technicians know.

Read / Watch / Play Series
StudioLab is a beginner-friendly environment for exploring the arts, humanities, and sciences through hands-on experiences. It is because of these values that the StudioLab also celebrates play, and subsequently celebrates games. Read / Watch / Play is our monthly collection of articles, videos, and games centered on a theme.
StudioLab has four high-end PCs that we use for VR, games, motion capture, modeling, scanning, and video editing. Each computer is pre-loaded with a suite of software as well as a few games we think are especially worth your time.
