Game Developers League

Website/Forum Discord Patreon

Description from Patreon:

Hello! I’m Mike (Violent Crumble on Discord), and I created the Game Developers League, a community of established and aspiring game developers from all over the world. We have had over 7000 developers come through the doors and new developers are joining every day. For many of us Game Dev League has become like a second home, which we are on almost everyday, getting help or advice or even just chatting about anything and everything.

We also host game jams with prizes! from 6hr mini jams, to 2 week marathons, We have the game jam for you!, We try to offer the best prizes we can for those game jams and try to ensure everyone learns from them.
