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?
