What we're about

Make games

Share knowledge

Support one another

CiGDA (often pronounced 'sig-dah') is a free, open and supportive, grass roots group for game developers (artists, designers, coders, etc.) We meet with the purpose of learning and sharing information about independent game development (self-publishing, DIY, bootstrapping, resources, methods, etc.)

Most importantly this group is an accessible support structure to gather artists, designers, programmers, musicians and writers to make self-expressive interactive content for fun and profit.

This group is truly independent. Our topics and events center around content sharing solutions to the challenges faced by independent developers.

We never charge money to attend our meetups nor to play-test games. It is our honor to have you! The Meetup dues are entirely optional, to help us cover the cost of Meetup fees.

NOTE: We have ties with the much larger IGDA (International Game Developers Association), and we'll often collaborate on events with them - but we're our own organization.

Upcoming events (4+)

Casual Downtown Dev Meetup

14er Brewing & Beer Garden

Let's start meeting around a table again.

I suggest wearing masks at the event.

Hang with other developers, talk about life, game development, and the meaning of being a developer in Denver.

The tables I want to try and claim have access to power, so please bring a laptop and show us what you are working on if you like.

Looking forward to seeing all of those faces again!
