Do you make games or do anything related to the creation of games? Ever wanted to make a game of your own? Come to Dev Night, a once-a-week throwdown for game developers in Philly! We talk games, play games, make games, compete, collaborate, and share. Dev Night is a creative time for creative people in a creative space. Programmers, artists, designers, writers, students, hobbyists, full-time devs, board game-makers, and enthusiasts are all welcome!

NOTE: We are currently in transition to finding a new space to host Dev Nights. Subscribe to stay on our mailing list with updated info to come once we get things ironed out. Thank you.

    Time: Thursdays, 7:00 PM-???

    Place:  Currently looking for new spaces. Please get in contact with us if you know of a good one.

    What to bring:

      A laptop. (Philly Game Forge provides power outlets aplenty, a WiFi connection, and the table space. We have room to fit up to about thirty people.)

      Your game or game idea. How you build you idea is up to you. While the majority of us use Unity to build games. We have developers who make games in Gamemaker, Cocos2D, Sprite Kit, and even straight C++.

      Headphones. If you want to concentrate on your work, but find noise distracting, headphones will come in handy.
