Welcome to Games Wales South, a social meetup for video-games developers that happens once a month in Cardiff.

Everyone interested in the games development industry is welcome: AAA, indie, mobile, social, desktop or whatever. Students and hobbyists, too!

We gossip, drink, rant about various games-related topics, and occasionally have people showing off their latest work.
