The University of Abertay's Dare to be Digital competition is an annual game-making event that gives student designers the opportunity to develop, build and showcase their work. Taking place at Dare to Digital's Dare ProtoPlay event, fifteen teams are selected as finalists, with a panel of industry experts selecting their top three games.
