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.

2023 Networking with Game Audio Boston!

Online event

Join Game Audio Boston for the first networking event of 2023! Last year's event was a blast and so we wanted to bring this back early on so we can get to know each other a bit more before the year goes on! We will be meeting at our standard 7:30 pm on the third Wednesday of the month: February 15th. Hope to see you then!

Virtual Demo Night, February 2023

Online event

Nothing to cheer you up amidst the long winter doldrums like a virtual demo night! Come see what the Boston Indies game dev community has been working on. Help each other out with a kind word, a supportive suggestion, and constructive feedback. Check out what new games are coming down the line, or show of your own project / demo / game.

If you are interested in presenting, please fill out the signup form here. All facets of game dev are invited to show off their work - composers, artist, writers, or anyone else.

A Discord link will be visible after you RSVP.
