About

Videogame developers in New England meet periodically in the Boston area to discuss the business of making and playing videogames, to meet old friends and make new friends in the industry, and to hang out, eat and drink, and have a good time. We are the Boston Chapter of the International Game Developers Association.

We normally meet during the second week of each month, alternating Tuesdays (on even months) and Wednesdays (on odd months).

Gatherings are normally held beginning at 7:00pm.

Attendees are expected to pay for their own refreshments. THIS IS NOT FREE. You pay for your own tab!

Locations:

We almost always meet at The Skellig on Moody Street in Waltham. Click here for directions.

We have, in the past, met at other places, sometimes for special events, sometimes just for a change of pace. When and if we do so again, we’ll post the information here.

Questions or problems should be sent to one of the organizers:

Les Nelken, Fitchburg State University
Dan Salsberg, Plaor
Aaron Melcher, Knockout Games
Dawn Rivers, Harmonix
Alex Engel, Disruptor Beam

Hello, just wanted to let you know that we at Metaversal Studios have moved our office from Boston to Cambridge. If you could update our entry on your list that would be great! :)

I attended my first meeting tonight and it was great! I was only able to talk to a handful of folks though and I would love to learn more about what everyone is doing. Would you consider creating a Boston Post Mortem group on LinkedIn to make it easier for folks to connect and network between meetings?

Thanks!

It looks like I messed up on that last comment, sorry. Can you add Psychsoftpc http://www.psychsoftpc.com to your company list? I noticed you have AMD listed, so I’m guessing us hardware guys are okay, too. thanks.

I was curious if you’d be so kind to add Primesquest.com to the list. iOS puzzle games to the rescue!

Thanks!
