IGDA Cincinnati was formed 2015 and has been on a steep incline of member participation. Our goals are to bring creatives in our area together and build games. We bring industry professionals in to come speak to our members, host numerous game jams through out the year, plan workshops to learn new tools, and allow our members to showcase their games to get creative input on their creations.
