Tech Valley Game Space

Make Games, Make Friends, Make a Difference

Welcome to TVGS

Tech Valley Game Space (TVGS) is an inclusive nonprofit organization founded on the principle that games and game making are for everyone. Our community and co-working space serves as a welcoming, accessible environment where both aspiring and experienced game developers are encouraged to mentor, educate, and support one another.


Our 24/7 co-working studio for game developers at 30 3rd Street in Troy, NY is an open, inclusive and safe working environment. This location is designed to function as a vibrant and accessible space for independent and hobbyist game developers, as well as anyone with an interest in creating interactive art.

Whether you are looking for a place to meet potential collaborators, or just need a change of scenery, consider joining at our affordable monthly rate!


We’re building a supportive community for new and professional game makers throughout the Capital Region. TVGS believes that making games is for everyone! We have weekly meetings and frequent opportunities to get involved in making games. Check out our Events page for a full listing of our programs, or go straight to browsing our Orbit groups, upcoming Game Jams, and special workshops and presentations.


At TVGS, we believe that a more diverse and nurturing game development community is also a more sustainable one. There is a vital need for new voices within the game development space, and our mission is to help address that need.

We develop game creation opportunities for diverse groups, from Troy middle school students, to creative adults from communities that are underrepresented in game development. Check out our recent and upcoming programs to get involved!


Tech Valley Game Space is dedicated to building a healthy game development ecosystem in New York’s Capital Region. Join us today to take your game-making to the next level with some great membership benefits and help build opportunities in games for others.
