We're a group of game developers, programmers, artists, musicians, animators and game enthusiasts that meet to discuss game design and collaborate on computer game projects.  Members include students, hobbyists and professional game developers.

We talk about iPhone, XBox, online, PC, virtual world, Android, console, Augmented Reality, MMORPG and even board games.

Come along and share your own ideas and projects for games, or recruit people to work on one with you.

We're organised by the NZ Game Developers Association and the Colab PIGsty.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
