The Game Development Club was created for the sole purpose of generating and maintaining a space for developing games. To foster a learning environment for game development and design where people can come together to meet others who share similar ineterests, to play games for learning and research, and, above all, to learn how to develop games. No prior game developing knowledge, such as programming or art experience, is necessary. The club is met to help and teach one another, so we will help you get started on your journey towards game development. All you need is passion, a positive attitude, and determination. Anyone who wants to lean develop game is welcome to join us, even non-students.
We provide many resources, as well as inspiration and motivation, to help our members learn about the processes and roles that are put into game development. We form small teams amongst the members to help them work on a game developing project centered on a agreed upon game idea within that team. In addition to that, the club provides opportunities where our members can network with their peers and professionals to make meaninful connections. The club reaches out to industry professionals and have them explain on their experiences in making games as well as to teach fundamental game making ideas. We also host fun game jams, where participants compete to try and make a video game from scratch within a limited amount of time. Come see our club game showcases to see all the wonderful games that our members have created. All of this is done in hopes of helping people understand the process of game developing.
You can reach us by coming to one of our meetings. Official club meetings are only held during the Fall semester (August-November) and Spring semester (January-May) of SJSU. We meet every Thursdays at 7:00pm in the MLK Library's Innovation Center which is located at the basement level. We are also very active on Discord, so you are welcome to join our server and message any of the current officers or the club advisor about any questions. If not Discord, try any of our other social media platforms.
