The NZGDA has launched a shared work space for indie game developers called The Arcade Auckland – which is currently free for any casual NZGDA member to use and low cost for any regular member. It’s based at 32 Shaddock St, Mt Eden.
Anyone interested in using it are welcome to drop by – but drop us a line first on firstname.lastname@example.org to check when other developers will be there.
The Arcade Auckland provides a space for developers to collaborate, solve-problems and get advice in a supportive environment. It comes with desks for 10-15 people, wifi, a large conference area and full office amenities. In future industry and educational events and Game Jams can be hosted at The Arcade.
The space is inspired by, but not officially affiliated with, The Arcade Melbourne which hosts a number of indie developers and is operated by our friends the Game Developers Association of Australia.
The Arcade Auckland has its own Community Manager Joe Chang (also a NZGDA Board Member) to answer your questions and to work with the community to make the space and events held there valuable. The Arcade has been open since December 2015.
