Make games

Share knowledge

Support one another

CiGDA (often pronounced 'sig-dah') is a free, open and supportive, grass roots group for game developers (artists, designers, coders, etc.) We meet with the purpose of learning and sharing information about independent game development (self-publishing, DIY, bootstrapping, resources, methods, etc.)

Most importantly this group is an accessible support structure to gather artists, designers, programmers, musicians and writers to make self-expressive interactive content for fun and profit.

This group is truly independent. Our topics and events center around content sharing solutions to the challenges faced by independent developers.

We never charge money to attend our meetups nor to play-test games. It is our honor to have you! The Meetup dues are entirely optional, to help us cover the cost of Meetup fees.

NOTE: We have no ties with the much larger IGDA (International Game Developers Association) but many of us are members and also attend IGDA events and conferences.
