We create a welcoming environment for seasoned game developers and beginners alike. We also host a diverse range of events, during which you can share your knowledge and ideas with others in a stimulating environment.

SOCIALS: MICROTALKS, WORKSHOPS & SHOWCASE

Talk to people about games, come by if you are just curious, listen (or give!) short talks, learn about gamedev and play or receive feedback on your games. Non-members and non-students welcome!
