Tech Valley Game Space hosts a wide variety of online events and classes via our Discord server. Discord is a 100% free-to-use online chat and video conferencing tool, similar to Skype or Zoom (only better).

If you’d like to participate in our inclusive community of local game makers, joining the TVGS Discord is a great place to start. Joining is easy – just follow the steps below!
