Philly Game Mechanics is a project of CultureTrust Greater Philadelphia, a charitable 501(c)(3) trust supporting diverse cultural practices in the Philadelphia region. We focus on supporting and growing the game development and enthusiast community in Philadelphia. We provide events, resources and networking opportunities for artists, musicians, programmers and all sorts of creatives. We believe in providing a safe space for students, hobbyists, and professionals to create. We think that community visibility and collaboration provides value not only for the immediate community but to the whole city.
Philly Game Mechanics is an entirely community run organization, still some community members have dedicated themselves to accomplishing tasks to keep everything moving onwards and upwards. Here is the list of the “Dev Knights”, the community members who help out.
