What we're about

AGDG was founded on September 16th, 2014 in Albuquerque, New Mexico and officially became a 501c3 non-profit organization on December 13th, 2016. We focus on fostering a growing community dedicated to the creation and development of games for any medium (video, tabletop, etc.). Our membership also consists of individuals working in fields related to software and technology, art, media, film, business, and education. Our community creates games, hosts local and global game jams, workshops, and provides education outreach. We hold regular meetings that support collaboration and provide developers with networking and feedback opportunities.
