What we're about

Great friends make great games! Connect with a rockin' community of inspired game creators, artists, musicians, programmers and all around radical dudes and dames - like your amazing self :)

Check out our Discord server here:

The main purpose of this group is for anyone LA-based involved in the creation of indie games to connect in person (not just online.) Atmosphere is laid back - mostly, we just hang out, chat, drink and occasionally showcase games. True learning is social, and true connections can and have been made in this Meetup group, and have lead to collaborations on cool indie games.

We have a couple of monthly Meetups: one in Highland Park at Verdugo Bar (usually the 3rd Monday of the month) and one at Panera Bread in West Covina (usually the first Tuesday of the month.) We also occasionally collaborate with other groups to inform our members of workshops (such as the Masters of Game Design series at NY Film Academy in Burbank) and game jams. However, there are always game events happening around LA, and we would always welcome information about them to inform our members.

We are also looking for indie dev creators to organize events on the West side! Please message Jessica (the group organizer) if you would be interested in setting up events in Santa Monica, Venice, or anywhere in or West of Culver City. All the organizers right now are on the East side, a lot of members have expressed interest in meeting on the West side.

Northeast Meetup

Needs a location

We will be back at Verdugo Bar on Monday, October 3rd at 7:30 pm. This is an informal hang to chat about our games (recently released or in progress), meet other indie developers, composers, artists, etc... Note that this monthly Meetup at Verdugo is usually on the 1st Monday of the month (though this does change occasionally.)

You are welcome to bring your games in progress to showcase, as long as you don't mind the casual environment (and the fact that, unfortunately, there is no reliable WiFi at the venue.) Anyone involved in indie games is invited to hang out - developers, composers, programmers, artists, writers, game fans, etc... We will be on the outdoor patio as usual. Sorry, since this meetup is at a bar, this event is 21+ only.

To support the business, please purchase the drinks - alcoholic or not - from the bar. Tacos are occasionally for sale at Verdugo Bar. Also, since I will be giving Verdugo Bar our estimated attendance, please do you best to RSVP.


Hope to see you there!
