Welcome to brIGDA

brIGDA is a chapter of the IGDA (International Game Developer Association). Chapters connect game developers in local communities around the world. Through regularly scheduled meetings, chapters provide an opportunity for professional game developers to interact with peers on a local level, and reach out to international peers. The Brisbane chapter of the IGDA seeks to bring together game developers and the community in the greater Brisbane area, including the Gold and Sunshine Coasts.

The Greater Brisbane chapter of the IGDA (brIGDA) was founded in 2004 by truna and Matthew Ford. You can read our story over on IGDA Perspectives (via web archive May 2011). Since we started much has happened in the Australian and international game development scene, particularly the rise of the indies, and we now boast a beautiful vibrant community of lovely passionate people who like to make games, play games, talk about games and who are the most supportive and generous group of folks we have had the privilege to know.

Come and play with us.
