What we're about

Meet and socialize with local professional and aspiring video game developers to talk about game development, design, and the game industry. Programmers, artists, designers, and anyone else interested in game development are invited to join. Let's show the world that Ohio is the next hot spot for the video game industry! Check out Ohio Game Dev ( for a list of companies and games made in Ohio. And check out the OSU Game Creation Club ( if you're an OSU student. If you're looking for other game developer groups in Ohio, check out the Southwest Ohio Video Game Initiative ( or The Cleveland Game Developers (

Anyone is welcome to show up at a meeting, from hobbyists who want to learn more about the best way to distribute their games, to professionals who want to talk about the newest tech. Our meetings often last 3-4 hours, and discussion topics can range from technical details of shaders to the latest and greatest games to how the market is in mobile space. The focus of this group is mostly social.
