Good day to you all!
My name is Gabriel and I'm one of the newest Assistant Organizers (THANK YOU, JOE!!!) to the Meetup Group, the Founder of Nascent Games here in Sacramento, and taking the lead on establishing a new Sacramento chapter for the IGDA. It's nice to meet you all (if I haven't met you already)!
For quite some time now, we've been pushing on creating a new chapter for the International Game Developers Association here in Sacramento. This has not been solidified.
With excellent initiative coming from Jacquelyn & Joseph, we've come to a checkpoint where we are 1 developer/signup away from beginning the initial filing to become a chapter.
As previous emails have mentioned before, there are many benefits (Discounts to conferences like GDC, etc.) to becoming a member for the IGDA. But, more importantly, a Sacramento chapter allows other organizations to take us seriously in our respective visions as game developers & designers. We'll have the ability to attain more sponsored game jams, etc.
The time is now to get this done and further our presence here in Sacramento.
I need a minimum of 10 members so I can get the paperwork filed to my contact at the IGDA. From my understanding, we have 9. This was the last update from some months ago. So, I don't know who else has signed up or cancelled since then.
This is where you all come in. If you have already registered on the IGDA website (www.igda.org), then please email me confirming you have and I will add your name/team to my Indie Dev list.
If you haven't yet signed up, please get on it now! You can signup as an Individual or an Indie Team. Either is ok! You just need to be an Indie Dev, of course. :)
Membership begins around $30 for the year! And, as mentioned before, there are a ton of benefits to signing up. The sooner I submit this list, the sooner we'll be able to take the next step into expanding our horizons more in this ever-growing city of ours. Once you have signed up, shoot me an email to [address removed]
I'd like to get this list submitted to my IGDA contact by the end of this month.
If you have any questions on this long email (sorry!), please don't hesitate to contact me. Thanks for your time everybody! Lets turn this chapter into a reality!
