The goal of the Philadelphia Game Lab is to create a nexus for creative and technical learnings and collaboration in this area. We are working with local Universities as well as game industry experts and entities to form a community where the full value of local resources can be a destination point for publishers, investors and related businesses.
Most game development teams in Philadelphia consist of 2-6 members, and we will begin with a capacity of 12 teams. Our location is in Center City Philadelphia, close to universities and at the center of the business, art and non-profit communities. The physical space will serve both the ongoing needs of the resident development community as well as other developers and interested entities, with a variety of sessions and events generally available. Our goal for the first year is to have flexible membership fees that will be partially sponsored. We will also have ongoing scholarships for university teams, and ongoing educational initiatives for teens.
