Since 2012, IGDA Taiwan has been responsible for organizing and site-to-site collaboration for Global Game Jam and Fukushima Game Jam satellite sites in Taiwan. In conjunction with developer communities in different cities, we usually have 3 sites in Taipei, Taichung and Kaohsiung respectively, with more than 100 attendees all sites combined joining the jams, creating a great opportunity for game developers, students and game enthusiasts to team up, brainstorm and build something fun.
Taipei Game Developers Forum
Taipei Game Developers Forum Official Site
Taipei Game Developers Forum, abbreviated TGDF, is an international conference founded by the local game developer communities, with IGDA Taiwan as a co-organizer. Each year we try to invite a good number of domestic and international game developers, discussing a wide variety of topics ranging from the development experiences, programming techniques and visual arts, to community building, market trends and more. By conducting this forum, we aim to create an open-minded and experience-exchanging environment, in order to improve the condition of our game industry, and encourage international collaborations.
TGDF Indie Space

For the need of local showcases among the indie developer community, since 2016, TGDF started organizing "TGDF Indie Space" showcase during the same dates alongside with the conference part of the event, giving more opportunities to the indie developers to exhibit their projects, exchange experiences, and collaborate. Starting from 2018, Indie Space began to be held inside of Summer Game Show, attracting thousands of visitors, helping the developers getting more feedback from the players and overall exposure.
