The Jamaica Game Developer Society is a coalition of projects and people in support of Jamaica’s video game communities.
Founded in 2013, the organization primarily serves to advocate for the emerging local game development sector, by providing education, sharing of experience and network opportunities.
To that end, the JGDS Organizes socials, presentations, and showcases, and established connections with the interactive design community at large.
