What we're about

We started this Meetup to bring together the best devs, designers and entrepreneurs in the Chicago social, core, casual and massively multi-player online (MMORPG) games space. We are game developers committed to building studios and opening markets.

Meet some friends, hear a couple of great industry speakers talk about what's cool in games. Let's talk about the industry and the science of making great games. Hopefully we can be a resource. Please join our Meetup and pass the URL to other friends of yours in the local gaming space.
