What we're about

We are a group of independent game developers, students, and fans. We share a passion for game development and the independent games that we love to play.

Our meetups usually last around 2 hours but the great thing about the meetup is the relationships with other developers that you will build. We are not just colleagues, we are friends, and are willing to help with feedback on projects and other needs that fellow indie developers might have.

We welcome amateur and professional game developers. If you are interested please join us, you will get a lot out of these meetups!

Indie Video Game Developer Meetup - NW Burbs Location

Arlington Heights Memorial Library

Meeting is in in the new Large Conference Room I - on the second Floor. Do you know how or want to develop video games? Do you want to help others develop video games? This is the meetup for you to join then. We are a bunch of very laid back developers who come together twice a month to blow off steam and nerd out a little bit. We talk about games that we are developing, games we have played lately, games we played as kids... pretty much anything that anyone wants to talk about. We encourage members to bring works in progress for critique and feedback any time. Not a member? You are free to come and take part! If you want to drop by to get feedback on your work and scoot on out afterwards that's fine, we are glad to help. So come on out to a meetup or two, you will have a good time talking games with us.
