About Philly Game Mechanics

Welcome to our Patreon!

We are Philly Game Mechanics, a charitable organization working to inspire, provide educational resources, and create opportunities for Philadelphia's game development community. Our goal is to enrich the technical and artistic abilities of our community members.

What is Philly Game Mechanics?

Philly Game Mechanics started as a small meetup of local creators sharing their art, designs, code, techniques, and anything they found interesting. Over time, attendance grew, and a group of volunteers began working behind the scenes to create an environment where students, hobbyists, professionals, musicians, artists, coders, and everyone in between could create games together. Part of what makes Philadelphia special is it’s scrappy, talent-driven community, filled with amazing people that create independent games overflowing with personality.

Each month, Philly Game Mechanics puts on various events, including game jams, showcases, show and tells, Q&As, critique nights, and more. The volunteer staff, known as the Dev Knights, meet monthly to discuss the ways they can provide opportunities for community members to improve their crafts. Events are free to attend and open to the public, no matter your level of game development experience. We also look to promote community gmes, improving visibility and helping developers reach their potential.Your continued support allows us to continue providing local developers with a place to work, create, share, and inspire each other. A little help goes a long way, and we appreciate every bit of it.

Why Patreon?

This Patreon is aimed at helping Philly Game Mechanics support the Philadelphia independent game community. Funds provide our community with resources, opportunities, and a space to gather to help them create their best work. You can follow all the great things that we do on our website, on Twitter @phillygamemecs, or on Facebook.

Philly Game Mechanics is a project of CultureTrust Greater Philadelphia, a charitable 501(c)(3) trust supporting diverse cultural practices in the Philadelphia region. (In case you’re wondering, that means that Patreon pledges are tax deductible!)
