Who we are
GameDev Estonia is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing and coordinating the development of the video game industry in Estonia. GameDev Estonia represents individual Estonian video game developers and development companies of any scale, outsourcing companies, research centers, and educational organizations.
We already managed to bring together most of the Estonian GameDev community. Become a member of our association through Patreon to get the latest news in the field, networking opportunities, and job prospects.
The main goal is to bring together local game development forces, companies, entrepreneurs, and ultimately universities.
Our latest activities
In February of 2022, we published an Estonian GameDev Industry overview. This paper was part of the effort to map out the Estonian game development industry landscape. It was sponsored by Gamecan OÜ, Placeholder Gameworks OÜ, and Ringtail OÜ with the additional support of the Estonian game development community. This paper is widely used by the community and was used in the creation of the European Game Development overview paper. by European Game Developers Federation (egdf.eu).
In June of 2022 we organized a Summer Conference event. It was divided into two parts – the first evening was an official bigger-scale event where we will discuss the latest Estonian releases and future plans, then on the second day were mainly discussions on the upcoming events and cooperation possibilities inside of the community.
We are helping students to find careers in local game dev, studios to promote their projects and to make a game development community more visible to the open public. Additionally, we organized many community events such as DEMO day, Drawing Workshop, and Monthly Meetups.
