We’re home to Chicagoland videogame makers and creatives who push the boundaries of interactive art.

We offer developers an affordable co-working environment, community leaders a space to host events, and artists a place to experiment. The Co-op supports, inspires, and creates a flexible space to unite this amazing community.

Chicago is known for its warm, inviting spirit. It’s no different here. Someone’s always eager to assist with tech problems, vet game design decisions, or blow off some steam with Smash. We regularly host meetups of all shapes and sizes, and keep company with some of Chicago’s best game developers. The community here truly lives and breathes games.
