About Society of Play

The Society of Play was formed in 2013 as an organization where independent game developers in North Texas can meet, share ideas, and lend support. The group has successfully grown to over 700 registered members and hosts dozens of meetings and events per year including postmortems, workshops, game jams, indie game tournaments, play testing sessions, video game expo booths, and social events. Regular meetings and membership have always been 100% free, and will always stay that way. In 2018 we officially became a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit, meaning your contributions are now tax-deductible!

The Society of Play would like to expand our activities and are asking you for more resources to help us do just that. All money collected through Patreon (aside from Patreon's fees) will go entirely into the group by allowing bigger and better events, lowering the cost of event tickets, and helping to pay for website costs and various registration fees and promotional material. We've had a fantastic couple of years, and can do even more with your help.  Even a few dollars a month could go a long way to make the group bigger and better. 

We appreciate your support. Together we can grow the Society of Play even more!
