IGDA Victoria is an organization designed to keep the local game development community connected and collaborating by sharing each other’s experience & knowledge.  No matter your specialty, experience level or studio size, we are all equals.  For more, check out our Anti-Harassment Policy

The IGDA is the largest non-profit membership organization serving individuals who create video games.

Victoria’s Chapter is organized by Graham Davis (Velvety Couch Games, TinyMob Games),  Chris Lefebvre (Appodeal, Tilting Point, Indie Prize), Dylan Gedig (Red Nexus Games), Mel Reams (Referral Sasquatch) & Jay Prost.

Of course, without the generous support of our sponsors in Victoria’s flourishing games and tech industry, and the participation of our active developers, none of this would be possible.
