The Junior Development Experience (JDE) is a student-run studio at DePaul University, dedicated to making games. Composed of students, alumni, and faculty from all across the university, the JDE provides an environment for people of various disciplines to work together on projects as they would in a real development environment. If you are interested in making games we can find a role for you!

Our Games


The goal of the Junior Development Experience (JDE) is to produce both festival and portfolio worthy pieces that every member can proudly display.
