Our Communities

Boston Indies

Boston Indies is a community of dedicated independent game developers in Massachusetts and the surrounding area. We define ourselves in connection with our community spirit and our group objectives. We gather in person once a month to talk about the art and craft of making games, and to share our work with each other.

Our goals are to:

• Foster a sense of community among Boston’s independent game creators

• Facilitate the monthly meetup and other related community events

• Encourage makers to create games independent of large budgets and large company ties.

• Provide a safe environment to obtain critical feedback on game development works in progress.

• Serve as a brain trust for important information sharing among local independent developers

We are completely agnostic with respect to technology, development platform, game type, and scope of game development. As long as you show up with an open mind and a helpful attitude and you are committed to making your own games, on your own terms, you are welcome to join us.

[BPM] Both sides of the brain: What is Tech Art? with Joey Pagano

THE TALK
Join us Tuesday, December 13th when we host Boston native Joey Pagano, as they conduct an excellent lesson in Tech Art 101. What is the role of a Technical Artist? How do you meet that middle-ground between the technical and the visual? How does it play into game development? Joey lays this out and his history with the discipline in this awe-inspiring talk!
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Joey Pagano is a 3D technical artist and self-dubbed "human homunculus created by science to devour all means of 3D art", inspired by the JRPGs he continues to play before and after work. As a technical artist who has worked for all sorts of major companies such as Rockwell Group, FX, and Meta, Joey's pursuits have led him across all manner of 3D software and pipelines; though he finds his home most often within Unreal Engine. While rooted in gamedev, Joey's experience covers a wide gamut of technical artistry: television, film, music videos, and even virtual production.
