But it looks like Philly Dev Night, the regular Thursday-night hangout for the city’s game makers, has found a new home — albeit, a temporary one.
G-Team, a Chinatown gaming lounge and internet cafe, will be hosting the meetups starting Thursday, Aug. 4, from 7-10 p.m.
Exile is over! Games need to be made! We will be announcing this month’s game jam theme on Aug 4th! Join us! https://t.co/bzufziu89O
