Believe it or not, there are a few game development groups near Tulsa. First up, obviously, is Oklahoma Game Developers. They meet regularly in Oklahoma City. Just a few hours east, we have the newly formed Northwest Arkansas Game Developers. And a few more hours northeast is the St Louis Game Developer Co-op. The St. Louis folks even have their own YouTube channel (see above). It’s worth keeping an eye on (and so is ours!).
All of these groups are super friendly, and it’s worth reaching out to say hello. Makes some friends, and make some games!
