What is Sacramento Indie Arcade

Since 2007, our active game developer community has fostered growth of game development in Sacramento. In April 2014, Nascent Games & IGDA Sacramento decided it was time to show the region and the world what is being created in California’s capital city. A reason to CELEBRATE these milestones from our respective developers! Through celebration, education and inspiration, the inaugural Sacramento Indie Arcade was born!

About The International Game Developers Association - Sacramento Chapter

The International Game Developers Association - Sacramento Chapter 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 peers, promoting professional development and advocating on issues that affect the developer community.

Founded in April 2013, the purpose of IGDA Sacramento is to allow game developers a place where they can come together, network, share ideas, create empowerment & inspiration from these ideas, form friendships and learn ways to get into the game industry or how to be better if one is returning into the industry.

Each month the Chapter hosts networking events and game jams to encourage growth and development within our community.
