Our Mission

The International Game Developers Association of Sacramento was created to help foster growth of professional game development in our local region. Our mission is to advance the careers and enhance the lives of game developers by connecting members with their peers, promoting professional development, and advocating on issues that affect the developer community.

What We Do

Founded in April 2013, the purpose of IGDA Sacramento is to allow game developers a place where they can come together, share ideas, form friendships and learn ways to get into the Video Game Industry. Each month the Chapter hosts networking events and game jams to encourage growth and development within our community.

This is it folks! You've worked on your game idea up to this point, THE FINAL STRETCH! WOOOOT! For now, I will put the timeslot from 11am-5pm. But, I will work on extending hours out (if all are interested) to allow extra time into the evening to get whatever you all can possibly get done on this day! More details soon!
