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.
We are all trying to be better in our craft. To be better at making our excellent game ideas come to life. This kind of community effort is the only way we can help better each other & become even stronger than we already are in Sacramento.
We can. We will. We already are...
We may not yet be where we want to be. But, I’m elated that we are where we currently are!
Let us continue creating these moments, within our vibrant nerd community, with these upcoming events for September 2016
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!
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.
We are pleased to announce our keynote speaker for the 2016 Sacramento Indie Arcade Gaming Expo!
TableStar Games is a Sacramento based studio who specializes in creating board games and apps.
#WeAreHere, Sacramento! I'm pretty sure I've said this before. The unity in community! Inclusion, not exclusion. Are you ready?
One of our very own chapter members, Garrett McPherson, contributed the audio work for this excellent student project! CHEERS TO GARRETT ON THIS!!!
We are SUPER, SUPER excited to introduce a couple of awesome nerds to our Sacramento Chapter & Community: NINJA PANDAS
For our June show we welcome game development graduate student Caroline G., William Tan from Rocktastic Games (Davis, CA) and Jeremiah Ingham from Arclight Worlds (Sacramento, CA).
Good day, my fellow Nerds!!! :D
THIS. IS. IT!
Our upcoming IGDA Sacramento Indie Arcade event on 4/11/2015 is less than a week out!!!
This is the event that DEFINES our community!
It is our pleasure to feature a very cool Indie studio (plus, their NAME!) straight out of Davis: Fearless Little Toaster
Did you know there are video game developers that develop games with their kids? Tonight on Sacramento Gamers Unite, we chat with West Sacramento native Steve Whitney about game development and family. In the second hour, we will be chatting with the co-founder of Adversary Games, Colleen Delzer to discuss what it's like to be a female game developer.
We're PSYCHED to feature a new Indie Game released by one of Sacramento's own Indie Studio: Nexcra Software!
Our special guests will be Nick Marinelli, Director of MAGFest (Music and Game Festival), plus John Cleveland of SacramentoMega Games!
Why is this an awesome thing? Because the developers were right here in Sacramento!
