Yes, Philly Game Forge is gone, but don’t count its annual toy drive out just yet: say hello to the Philly Dev Night Holiday Social V3.
On Friday, Dec. 16, at the Microsoft Reactor Philadelphia, the band of game designers is getting together for a night of geekiness and charity, as they set out to gather toys for the kids at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
Attendees can play with some Philly-made videogames from this lineup of makers:

  • Drew Wallace
  • Get Warmer
  • Ghost Crab Games
  • Honeycomb Interactive
  • OriGaminc
  • PHL Collective
  • QuadraTron Games
  • Red Queen
  • String Theory School

The cover charge comes with some good karma: all you need is a brand-new, non-toxic unwrapped toy or book to donate.

Companies: PHL Collective / Philly Game Forge / Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
