About the Club

We are the CPP Game Development Club, formerly known as the CPP Game Design & Development Club. Our club's purpose is to promote and educate students about the world of game design and development. It welcomes students interested in different aspects of development whether it be creating art, writing stories, composing music, programming, business and marketing, or simply playing games.

Current Board and Officers | 2023 - 2024

PRESIDENT | Melvin Gitbumrugsin

"Hi! My name is Melvin and I am the president for this year. Video games have always given me joy throughout my life, so I hope to someday be able to create games that give people that same sense of joy. I enjoy coding, so I am mostly interested in the programming aspect of game development."

VICE PRESIDENT | Sam Macaraniag

"Hi everyone, I'm Sam! I'm a previous president of the club now working as vice president! I initially got into game development due to my love of video games (obviously), but it also incorporated my three biggest hobbies: art, music, and writing. I've been wanting to make video games since I was a kid, and now that I know how to make them, I want to share the knowledge to anyone else who's interested in game development!"

Year and Major: ???th Year, Computer Science and Writing Studies Minor
Hobbies: Singing, Digital art, Playing games, Playing guitar, Trolling my friends in coop games


"I’m Rob, the secretary for CPP GDC for the 23-24 academic year! I’ve been playing video games for as long as I remember, and I’ve always wondered what it would be like to make them. After joining this club, I learned that game development is pretty fun and something that I enjoy! Thanks to this club, I’ve gained an interest in the coding aspect of game development."

Year and Major: 4th Year, Computer Engineering with a Computer Science Minor

TREASURER | Joshua Lai

"I’m Josh, this year’s club treasurer! I’ve been a Unity simp since middle school, and have been the proud creator of low-quality digital playthings for nearly a decade now (truly maidenless behavior). I like to dabble in all aspects of game dev, including art, music, animation, etc., but I’m most proficient in the programming side of things. As for why I’m interested in game dev, if there’s anything I love more than making games, it’s watching other people enjoy something I’ve made. That’s why I hope to make it into the game industry professionally, so I can watch other people have fun with (or suffer through) whatever part I’ve been able to contribute to a project."

Year and Major: 4nd Year, Computer Science
Hobbies: Programming, Doodling, Long walks, Video games

HISTORIAN | Luca Ficano Latimer

"Hey, I’m Luca, this year’s historian. I’ve been playing video games for a while, and I always wondered how certain aspects were brought into games, so I’m slowly trying to learn how to do so. I may be more focused on the programming side, but I’m still trying to figure it out."

Year and Major: 2nd Year, Computer Science
Hobbies: Tennis, Soccer, Video Games, Watching F1


"Sup you can call me Louis or Lu I don't know anything about game design except that one time I made an escape room in scratch when I was 14 and theres a secret ending in that game where All Star by Smash Mouth plays. Then I played Fallout 4 for the first time and it was so cheeks that I became a writer out of sheer spite. I'm working on a few projects at the moment including our very own Planetary Pursuits, along with another project and scripts for plays that will come out at some point in the future. If you see me online feel free to ping me and tell me to stop rewriting the thing I'm writing right now."
