Games Wales

We’re a voluntary organisation made up of people from within the games industry in Wales. Our mission is to champion and promote games-making in Wales, to support the industry here, and to make sure everyone keeps talking to each other.

This site has been put together so that people in the industry in Wales can find each other, so that companies can find potential employees, so that freelancers can find potential employers, so that clients can find studios, and so that the world can see what the Welsh games industry is up to.

We have two sub-groups – Games Wales North, and Games Wales South. Visit their pages to find out about upcoming events!
