GameDevelop.io logo

GameDevelop.io's mission is to provide Game Developers of any skill level with the resources and knowledge necessary to develop Video Games.

The Resource Database is designed to be a complete and up to date collection of tools, assets, communities, and services commonly used by game developers.

The Guides are designed to contain critical information for tackling both the production and business sides of game development.

Founder
Lead Developer

A lifelong fan of Video Games and a professional in the Games Industy, Jack is building GameDevelop.io to make it easier for Game Developers to discover the right tools and learn valueable information.


History

GameDevelop.io was originally conceived as a job aggregator for the Video Game Industry. After discovering several well made job aggregators, it became apparent that there weren't any well maintained databases for game development resources. So, GameDevelop.io pivoted to become a Resource Database for game development.

To compliment the resource database, Guides were written to help indie developers learn more about games production, business, and marketing.

GameDevelop.io plans to continue expanding the resource database, and to provide insightful and helpful guides.

In the future, GameDevelop.io will provide its own set of tools to help developers come together and collaborate remotely.


On-going Plans

Update Resource entries with relevant or missing information
Improve the presentation and structure of Guides


Current Plans

Remake Website with React and CSS Grid
Port the Resource Database to a Postgresql server
Refactor various Resource lists for better filtering


Future Plans

Add a Sign Up and Login so users can directly submit changes to the Resource Database
Let users build out profiles and create a list of the Resources they use
Build out services to connect independent developers together
