A community for game developers and studios
The game industry in Aalborg is larger than you might think, and therefore, we aim to enhance the ecosystem in Aalborg and create better connections between students, developers, startups and established studios.
In collaboration with our partners Business Aalborg and Game Hub Denmark, we host numerous social gatherings and game dev workshops. The gatherings will strenghten the bond between developers and studios, and the workshops will improve the competences of students and developers alike.
Join the gamology facebook group
Students at AAU have banded together and created the Facebook group Gamology, which shares news about events in Aalborg, games the members create, as well as handy information for game development enthusiasts.
Do you have an idea for a game and would like help wth the process of developing and launching a game? Then join the AAU Game Hub and get special guidance and help with all the steps it takes to make it real.
Do you instead want to join a game development startup? Then we can also help facilitate the matchmaking!
