What we’re about

This group is a place for independent game developers who live in the Silicon Valley (near San Jose, Mountain View, Palo Alto, and Los Altos) to discuss design trends, platforms, tools, testing and sales techniques, the media, the IRS, lawyers, cloning, pirates, advertising, publishers, stupid mistakes we've made, and anything else that is relevant to an indie developer who wants to successfully make it in the games industry.

Find us and other Bay Area devs, events & resources at ! The mission of Bay Area Games is to help game developers in the Bay Area connect, learn & self promote. The site is intended to be developed by the community itself, and the more voices we have the more valuable the site will become for everyone, so we encourage you to contribute!

We have a collaboration worksheet!
If you are looking for project to work on or are looking for collaborators for your game, you can find it here: 

We are loosely affiliated with this Discord server!
If you feel like chatting *right now* instead of waiting for the next meetup, find some of us here:
