The Spring 2013 semester was the first Capstone Course in the GDAD Program at the University of Texas at Austin. That semester, undergraduates from the Computer Science Department, College of Fine Arts, and Radio-Television-Film Department were assigned to one of five teams, and each team developed a 2D video game.
