The IGDA wants YOU (again)!

Why rejoin the IGDA?

If you haven't paid attention to the IGDA in a while, the reasons to rejoin are many. You can start by checking out our current tangible benefits here: We are continually adding new benefits, event discounts, and resources to assist you in your career as a game developer (and we have a couple of very exciting software/hardware discounts to announce in 2017!).

In addition, you also have the ability to engage with a local chapter (160+ worldwide now!), as well as 30+ special interest groups, in order to engage with fellow developers, network for opportunities and collaborations, and to be a local voice for your industry.

And of course, core to the IGDA's mission, we continue to advocate on behalf of game developers worldwide, by speaking out on key issues affecting developers — such as work/life balance ("crunch" time), diversity and inclusion, the grey market for indie games, and so on. We also engage numerous other associations, communities, and governments to push the importance of developer-friendly policies and programs.

With a planned membership dues increase in 2017, now is the time to get back onboard with the IGDA — for the benefit of your career, your fellow developers, and your industry.

What to expect in 2017:
  • The Developer Satisfaction Survey
  • A new Global Mentorship Program, including IGDA Mentor Cafés at select events
  • Bigger and better range of activities at GDC, Gamescom and elsewhere
  • More tangible benefits, more Studio Affiliates
Don't miss out on this great opportunity — re-join today! If you have any questions, please contact IGDA HQ at

We hope to welcome you back to the IGDA family!
