What we're about

About Us

This group is open to anyone interested in the design and/or development of video games in the Iowa City area. If you enjoy developing your own games, creating art/music/sound for games, or just want to learn more about anything game dev related, we want to meet you!

If you're new to game development and don't know where to start, check out Sortingh.at (http://www.sortingh.at/). If you'd like to ask questions or just connect with other local game developers, join our Discord server (https://discord.gg/JWrU3HV).

Code of Conduct

Our code of conduct (http://techcorridor.io/code-of-conduct.html) mirrors that of the TechCorridor.io (http://techcorridor.io/) group, with a particular emphasis on cultivating a space that is welcoming to everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. Lack of diversity in game development is an important issue that we hope to fight against by encouraging new perspectives to get involved with game development and we will not tolerate those who disrespect the contributions of attendees, regardless of skill level or personal interests (in addition to the other qualities listed above).

Game Dev Discussions

Come talk with us about making games!

Anyone is welcome, regardless of skill level or previous experience.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, we'll be meeting online. We will meet in our Discord server's "General" voice channel. If you have not yet joined our Discord server, you can join using the following link: https://discord.gg/h6TRWaq
