The Ohio Game Incubator is a confederation of Ohio Game Development People and related parties. This includes a regular business incubator with a specific target of the gaming industry in all its forms including computer games, mobile games, board games, educational games, etc. and all the ancillary products and services that go with them. Our mission is to create and grow a game creation environment in Ohio. Everyone is encouraged to contribute, no matter your experience level. Areas such as frame wrangling and QA require little or no experience.
The Ohio Game Incubator members frequent The Columbus Ohio Gamedev Group (COGG) meetups. These are a great way to get started in person networking with the local game development scene.
