Albuquerque Game Developers Guild (AGDG) promotes a community of collaboration in order to create and curate the future of game development in Albuquerque. Ours is a community of inclusivity and welcomes everyone interested in creating art, music, stories, and any other interactive game or experience design. To increase accessibility, community, and peer to peer support we pledge:
~ To provide a safe, inclusive, and inviting space for everyone who wishes to attend meetings, events, or workshops hosted by AGDG. These events are for anyone who seeks a place to create, teach, or collaborate within our community.
~ To provide access to resources that can be critical to many developers. This includes but is not limited to scholarship, mentorship, hardware, software, development kits, and presentation and collaboration equipment. Developers with few resources should have equal opportunity and the support necessary to bring their ideas to life.
~ To nurture the work of the local community through outreach, workshops, conference attendance, public events, and project promotion. AGDG will strive to create platforms to amplify the work and voices of the artists and developers in our community in a diverse and inclusive way.
AGDG was founded on September 16th, 2014 in Albuquerque, New Mexico and officially became a 501c3 non-profit organization on December 13th, 2016. We focus on fostering a growing community dedicated to the creation and development of games for any medium (video, tabletop, etc.). Our membership also consists of individuals working in fields related to software and technology, art, media, film, business, and education. Our community creates games, hosts local and global game jams, workshops, and provides education outreach. We hold regular meetings that support collaboration and provide developers with networking and feedback opportunities.
