Chris DeLeon ♥ Videogame Developers

I help people make their own videogames through Gamkedo and for over six months have been sharing developer stories on my podcast, Game Developers Like You. For the past six years I wrote HobbyGameDev.

While in university I founded VGDev and cofounded Game Creation Society. In October 2015 I started a similar club in Los Angeles.

I'm active daily in the community as @GameDevsLikeYou (formerly @HobbyGameDev).
