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.

Please meet the Sacramento Indie Arcade’s next panelist, Paul De Leon! Paul grew up gaming for hours on his NES and his love for video games hasn’t stopped. After obtaining a B.S. in Computer Science at UC Davis and developing software professionally, he decided to push his love for games even further and started an independent game development studio. Nexcra Software specializes in original 2D video games and has shipped two titles on iOS: GroundBreakers, Inc. and Mighty Guppy. Nexcra is working on their third title: Armored ACORNs for the Nintendo Wii U, which is scheduled to release 2017 Q1. If you want to learn how to break into the world of game development, be sure to attend Paul’s panel on Saturday, April 8th during the 2017 Sacramento Indie Arcade.
