Welcome to our Patreon!

Philly Game Mechanics hosts an array of events geared towards anyone interested in playing or creating games. We are looking to expand and start hosting more events and bring more game making resources to the Philly community. 

Starting in 2012 with just two members, Game Mechanics has helped support the growing game development scene in Philadelphia. It is an intersection of students, hobbyists and professional artists, developers, designers, musicians and tons of other creatives. Everything is run by volunteers (Dev Knights) and on almost no budget. The scene has grown and we need to keep up with the size and talent here.

Patreon & Philly Game Mechanics

Our Patreon is meant to allow community members to help each other. Think of it as a donation or optional "membership fee". It takes a lot of hard work to hold these events and we can only achieve our dreams of bigger events, wider community outreach, and bringing game making to Philadelphia with your help! 



Video games are art, so why not be fancy and be a patron of the arts! Help local devs do what they love to do and help us celebrate this amazing scene the way it deserves! 


Philly Game Mechanics and Events

Philly Game Mechanics is an entirely free, public organization that consists of a multitude of events. Most popular is a monthly game jam that starts on the first week and is judged on the third week hosted graciously by our friends at Indy Hall. Winners receive a lovely laser cut trophy made by a community member and all games are hosted on our itch.io page for the world to see. We hold tournaments, formal game discussions, talks, critiques, and most importantly the opportunity to have people play your games! You don't have to be a patron to come to Game Mechanics t but we certainly would appreciate it!


Other events we hold such as launch parties, annual showcase, and the annual game jam award ceremony "The Jammies", are supported out of pocket by generous community members and occasionally some sponsors. It would be wonderful for this community to support itself and it can with your help. Your support would first go toward the events you already know and love and making them bigger, better and welcoming to members both old and new. Once we can do that we have plans for much larger special events and projects!

Thank You!
