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.

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

We aim:
  • to champion Wales as a place to make games.
  • to champion the games industry in general.
  • to grow the Welsh games industry.
  • to represent the industry’s interests, and act as an advocate on behalf of the Welsh industry.

If you agree that these are worthy aims, and are happy to support Games Wales in carrying them out, then you can help!
