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.

October-fest! | Game Audio Boston

Online event

Happy October audio folks!! Fall is upon us and to celebrate the change of season we are bringing you a night of lightning talks! Come let us know about your favorite horror game (or if you're not into horror; your favorite Fall-themed game) in 2-5 mins. We would love to hear about why it's fun or scary and how the music system enhances the gameplay. No need to prepare any presentation or slideshow but if you wanted to find a few pictures to post in the discord while talking that is highly encouraged!
