GaymerX RECAP 2016!!

Hey all! It's been a long time since we started out so we wanted to give a nice recap of how far things have come and give you a chance to be a part of it all!

GaymerX Year Four!

Right now we have a campaign up for our fourth local GaymerX event! We've got lots of cool stuff planned and some exciting surprises. Now's your chance to help us make this year awesome and also get some cool stuff! Check it out!

GaymerX Australia!

Not only is GaymerX continuing and growing, but we also got the chance to help out with an AUSTRALIAN GAYMERX! It was a total blast and you can check out the video from Good Game Australia above to get a glimpse of what it was like!

GXDev, a GaymerX game jam!

In 2015 we ran GXDev, a 24 hour game jam where a whole bunch of folks from the community, experienced or not, came out and made a ton of games! We had a lot of amazing guests such as the amazing Anna Kipnis of DoubleFine and the wonderful Rob Jagnow to give our jammers help and encouragement. Check out the games on itchio

LOTS OF COOL STUFF HAPPENED

Okay, really we just kind of want to gush about a lot of REALLY COOL STUFF that has gone on at GaymerX!
