Impact local industry.
The Boston game development industry has grown rapidly due to the incredible community that has surrounded it. By gathering successful small studios in one place, we are able to provide mentorship to new businesses and individuals. Most importantly, we aim to be the voice of indie developers with local and state government, promoting change and legislature that supports the growth and development of our industry.
Schools with programs that focus on game development can be made more effective with the involvement of industry experts. We can advise schools on the tools, processes and techniques that we are currently using to make our games. We are working to establish internship and mentoring programs to give students a first hand view of game development and access to developers to answer their questions.
Challenge one another.
The Collective is situated within WeWork Boston, a local co-working space located right near South Station in Boston, MA. Studios are invited to join to ensure a diverse range of experience and expertise. This creates an incredible work environment where everyone is challenged to produce their best work, while being surrounded others with the knowledge, networks and resources to make that happen.
