After the Philly Game Forge closed, the city’s largest game developers meetup was left to wander local beer gardens and parks.

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.


“Thanks for being patient as we worked on keeping Dev Night going,” wrote Dev Night cofounder Shawn Pierre on the meetup’s Google Groups page. “We look forward to seeing everyone soon!”
