Orbit: Beginner Game Design
First time attending this event? Please sign-up using our short form at if you haven't already done so. If you're interested in learning to make your own digital games using a simple and intuitive creative tool that doesn't require any prior experience with computer programming, this is the group for you! The Beginner Game Design Orbit group meets every Monday evening at Tech Valley Game Space and will provide a place to get feedback and advice on your game project for first time game creator. Join us and learn about how to create 2D games using tools such as Construct 2. After learning the basics, you'll apply your knowledge by working on your own game project alongside peers, with ongoing support from experienced mentors. Participants of all skill levels are welcome and encouraged to join in the fun! About Orbit Orbit is a community-driven mentorship program designed to provide greater opportunities for learning and collaboration at Tech Valley Game Space than ever before! The goal of Orbit is to bring local game makers (and aspiring game makers!) together based around mutual interests, and provide a consistent environment for sustained skill development, personal growth, and community building.

What we're about

Are you a game developer based in the NY Capital Region, or someone with an interest in making games? If so, then this group is for you!

TVGS is an active community of game makers that gathers on a weekly basis in Troy, NY to socialize, work together on group projects, and to coordinate hosting of monthly events such as presentations, classes, workshops, exhibitions of locally created games and playtesting sessions of work in progress. Participants of all backgrounds and skill levels are welcome and encouraged to attend!

In addition to our weekly meetings, we also run a full time co-working studio for game developers at 30 3rd Street in Troy. For more information, please visit our website at (

PLEASE NOTE: It is our goal to encourage and celebrate diversity in games with a constructive working and learning atmosphere at all TVGS gatherings. To that end, we are a safe space environment that welcomes people of all gender identities, sexual orientations, ethnic/racial and religious backgrounds, as well as abilities and ages to join in and feel confident that they will not face harassment or oppression within our community.
