Come to one of our meetings! Everyone at our meetings is very friendly and open to discussion about all aspects of game development. Of course, if you simply can’t wait for the next meeting, there are tons of game development resources available online. You can always just start by googling and make something. (It’s definitely more fun to show up to a meeting with a prototype — or sketches of one — that you’re dying to show to other game developers!)
Not at all! The IGDA is a great organization, but primarily focused on working professionals and students. Our meetings cater quite a bit to hobbyists in addition to being open and friendly to those who are simply “just interested” in game development. All of our events (so far) are open and free to the public.
We have a few different types of events, including our regular monthly meetings, as well as special events like game jams and E3 hangouts. Here is a list of our “regular” monthly meetings:
