From Game Making Tools Wiki
A little list of encouraging, supporting, jerk-intolerant Internet spaces.
- Glorious Trainwrecks
The forums are pretty quiet, but the people are lovely and talk a bunch via comments on the games.
- ALT G's
A Discord channel with a lot of Glorious Trainwrecks overlap.
An offshoot of ❇this place❇. It's a Mastodon instance, so it's a microblogging thing like Twitter.
If you're interested in joining, and/or you're new to Mastodon, see: Guide:gamemaking.social
- Game Making Tools Forum
Another offshoot of here. A new forum, which is also open to hosting subforums for any tools you're making.
Invite-only Mastodon server, mostly the DOMINO CLUB crew?
I haven't joined any of these, but maybe they're good?
Mastodon instance. More game-player focused, but it's well moderated.
- Game Dev Galaxy
'Discord group for gender-/sex-marginalized game devs making digital, analog, or experimental games. Different professions, skill levels, and styles welcome!'
Gamedev Place Currently a Mastodon instance, but maybe more in the future? Seems more professionally focused then here?
Actually I would not recommend this community. See: https://social.libre.fi/notice/9lc3iadTT8NFZhhkbQ and https://mastodon.gamedev.place/@aras/102426826928659547 where the admin (and Unity developer) refuses to remove the account of a prominent anti-trans dickwad — rjt (talk)
Another Mastodon instance. It's pretty new, but seems well moderated.
Forum focused on open-source game making.
Interactive Fiction-focused forum.
- One Hour Game Jam
Make a game in an hour. Runs every Saturday. There's a Discord.
- Indiegames Online
Anther new Mastodon instance, haven't seen much of them.
One of a few 'indiegame' focused instances, but
the only oneone of two (see next entry too) that seems deliberately LGBTQ+ friendly. Not actually related to the Indiepocalypse game collections.
Another new Mastodon game-making instance especially for queer people.
