I began writing these features to shine a light on the lesser known side of creative arts taking place in Sacramento. According to the Entertainment Software Association, of the 77 college programs and 889 companies that operate in California, approximately 32 of those have made Sacramento their headquarters. I am by no means a professional writer. I’m just someone who wants to help see our community succeed. As the person who has been heading up the social media marketing and outreach efforts for the Sacramento game development community over the last four years, I felt it was time to start telling the stories of the people behind the studios. Up until this year all of my posts have been promoting our meetups and the big events. But we are more than that and would be nothing without the little consistent tasks that take place day after day, week after week, and month after month.
Over the last 4 years I have spent most of my free time organizing events for the greater Sacramento game developer community. At one point we were averaging at least three to four events per month. This left me very little time to actually play games created by our developers. Now that I have stepped down from those responsibilities I have more time to devote to playing games!

I hope everyone is enjoying their 4th of July holiday weekend! Before we share our monthly events with you, we have a special announcement. To ensure that all facets of game development are well represented Gabriel and I have expanded our organizer team to include table top gaming, next level business development resources, as well as a club to represent Sacramento area college students!
IGDA Sacramento is proud to welcome Clare and Jateen Bhakta of Ninja Pandas to round out our speaker series for the 2016 Sacramento Indie Arcade Gaming Expo!
I share this with you because although our community is small, your consistent efforts and drive are beginning to show elsewhere. Do not be discouraged. We are growing together and are committed to helping create sustainable businesses here in Sacramento.
Happy New Year to you all! I hope it was a great holiday and you all made some great memories...and maybe even some games too! ;-)
As we get closer to the end of the year, there is much to reflect on and be grateful for. Our area developers/studios have made great strides locally and at events across the country.
