Hello! Those who are into game development or into gaming may want to
join the Philippine chapter of the International Game Developers
Association. We had our first meeting last April 4. Those interested to
join may look up the Manila (Philippine) chapter in http://www.igda.org.
Eric might be interested in this. I suspect a majority will be all talk and no code, but who knows?
