How Can I Use the Gamer Lounge?

All the games and consoles are available for use inside the Gamer Lounge, but we won’t be checking them out to take home. There’s no need to reserve them, just ask at the staff desk and we’ll hook you (and them) up. You can play games any time we haven’t reserved the space for special programs.

Share the space, be cool to each other, and have fun.

Can I Bring My Own Games to the Gamer Lounge?

Don’t like what we have? Bring your own games and accessories from home. You’re welcome to play any game rated “T” or lower.

Can I Make My Own Games?

Yes! We’ve installed game development software including Unity 5, Unreal Engine and GameMaker: Studio on all of our TeenHQ public computers. The computers also have online access to game development e-resources through Lynda.com and Treehouse.
